    Org Clarence's ancient monster pouch - added 2nd pouch LOL

    Clarence always manages to make monster finds every trip and this pouch is no exception. Apart from the double gold finds, two BC axe head jobbies, greedy bastard No pesky buttons or greenies to count either Couple of new 17thC trade farthing guys for our set too.

    Just had to send Clarence a DH message as he has two separate pouches, just found the one with pesky greenies amd musket balls in it Couple of real nice bonus widgets in his 'greenie' pouch I washed up, medieval purse bar, buckle and latch key.


    1750-1770 20 Real Joseph I Portuguese silver coin


    Saxon gold ingot - reported as treasure to museum
    3.21g, 8.43mm dia

    1.68g, 13.74mm
    The broken stater can be 13.0083. By coincidence I was looking at these yesterday, it's a Dubnovellaunos in Essex stater, ABC 2392, BMC 2425-2440, Van Arsdell 1650; there should be just enough of the legend showing to be able to die link the reverse. It's not a particularly rare type, over 100 in the Index at present. Hope the rest turns up, it's not unknown for different fragments of the same coin to turn up years apart!
    All the best

    This one is very easy. Constantius II, the type is FEL TEMP REPARATIO - soldier advancing left and spearing fallen horseman. The mint is Lugdunum (Lyons) - I'll even hazard a catalog reference - RIC VIII, Lyons 189 or 196, 6 November 355 - Spring 360. The mint mark is either GPLG or RPLG, respectively for the 2 numbers cited.


    Facinating unknown 1335 Edward III hammered silver penny- this does not match either transitional period or class 15d so it could be one of the unknown 2nd coinage 1335 -1343 issues
    New legend for a Durham mint as it should be either DOR/ELME or DVN/ELMI but this is clearly DVN/ELME
