Before creating an ID request please note you must:
1. include at least 2 photos of the item, both sides of a coin, or two angles of other items.
2. Include a ruler or other form of scale that clearly displays the scale in cm or inches. A coin or written dimensions is not acceptable.
Further information will also help, full guidance is below:
H - Have at least two good sized clear photos.
A - About your detecting day, type of land, depth found.
M - Measure items by doing the pics next to a scale or ruler.
M - Machine used and settings are interesting to other users.
Y - You will always get a better ID if you supply more information.
I've managed to find my first silver of the year. Ploughed field. only about an inch deep. Found with my Euro Ace.
I've identified it as Caius Naevius Balbus Silver Denarius Serratus, but wanted to see if this was correct. It weighs 3.4 grams.
A friend also found this oddity. I can find similar online, but nothing that is an exact match. It appears to be a coin used as a pendant / medallion. Sorry for no scale, but I am just awaiting confirmation of the diameter.

The other find looks like a Queen Victoria jubilee medallion-1887ad
I haven’t spotted your one yet
................And a bucket of optimism..........
I was reading this earlier too! It seems pretty plausible. Or maybe we just want to believe that rather than they put the serrations in simply for decoration...
