Silver Tally

19 Mar

I’d like to keep a running tally of my precious metal finds. So far these have only been silver. In finding order they have been:

– Julian II siliqua; NOV ’14


– George III shilling (1816); JAN ’15


– sterling silver bow tie pin; MAR ’15

 FullSizeRender (11)

– Henry III voided longcross penny; MAR ’15


– sterling silver heart locket; MAR ’15


– Elizabeth I three farthings (1575); MAR ’15


– Antonianus of Gordius III; MAR ’15


– blank broken silver coin worn smooth; MAR ’15

FullSizeRender (10)

– Elizabeth I silver penny (Spinks 2558); 2 April 2015


– blank silver coin fragment, worn smooth (found near ‘Roman Alley’; 6 April 2015)


– Victoria sixpence (1901); 12 April, 2015, on club dig in Cumnor


– Hammered silver penny (some say Lizzie; I think Henry); 25 April 2015, Thames near Greenwich

FullSizeRender (22)

NB: Also found on the Thames were a 1943 ‘silver’ U.S. nickel and a 1964 Sierra Leone five cents, but both were found by Mud God, so they don’t enter my count.

– Edward hammered silver penny; 28 April 2015; Saunderton, Wycombe District


– Cufflinks commemorating marriage of Charles II to Catherine of Braganza (1662); found in Reedy Crown field, 8 May 2015 (deposited under Treasure Act)
