    Fascinating bunch of finds, Willems! That 1699 silver coin cleaned up really well, and it has a super clear date.

    I love the photos showing the landscape and the incredible old building.

    The coins are great but the setting is second to none.

    Looks like something you see hanging in a museum.

    Fantastic Willems. Also really nice how clean and low the field has been mowed. Made for easier swings for sure. Curious about such old sites like the castle you describe. I assume it wasn't much trouble getting permission for the site, or was the field separate from the castle?
