IMPORTANT

Before creating an ID request please note you must:

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.

Had two and a half hours today and it wasn't windy. What's going on?
Anyway, managed to find these two coins. The first is I believe a Denarius of Antoninus Pius and was one of those "do I dig it or not"? Gave a scratchy 9 on the Equinox screen and was surrounded by iron. So I thought "just dig it" and very glad I did. Wasn't expecting that at all. Second coin is a very worn hammered of a late Tudor or Stuart monarch and was found at about 6" and again gave a soft scratchy 10 on the VDI. Please feel free to shoot me down with the I.D.'s and thank you in advance.
Both found on pasture with the Equinox 800 on Fld 1, manual GB, Multi frequency, sensitivity on 20 and Iron Bias on 2 with Reactivity on 4 and 5 tones.

Regards to all,

Just popped a couple of "after cleaning" shots. Spit-n-polish with spit-n-foil!
