New permission and a Charles 1st clipped half crown

Post by Mancave-man » Tue Jun 11, 2019 5:38 pm

Well, today I managed to get 3 hours on a new permission and found these two coins. The first is obviously a King Charles the first half crown which has been clipped of its outer edge and just for a change it is actually a silver one and not a contemporary forgery with a copper core. The second one is probably a token of some kind showing a seated man and some kind of framework on one side and a shield on the other. Both found with the Equinox 800 in field one mode with Iron bias at 1 and Recovery speed at 3 and five tones. Both found at about 4". The Charles came out of the ground as you see it in the pics. All shiney and clean. Amazing really. If anyone can ID the "Token" I would appreciate that.

Best regards to all,

The half crown is very nice, a shame that it is so clipped. The token is likely a late 18thC Rochdale Conder halfpenny one showing a weaving loom! :D
