What Will You Find?

my first hammered

Greetings from England, it's been nearly 2 years since i bought my tesoro compadre from kellyco. In that time I've found a lot of coins circa 1800 - 1900 - present. Just recently I decided to go on a an organised dig with other fellow detectorists and it paid off big time for me as i found my first hammered coin which is an elizabethan half groat from the 1500's
