    best roman

    hi all its been a while since i last posted but all the fields over here have been full of crops until recently.
    ive been out over the last couple of weeks and had a few nice finds, including my best roman coin.
    its a MAGNENTUS 350-353 AD, i also had a nice silver fob medal 1904 it has lincoln cathedral one side and the lincoln imp on the other.
    hope you like them, cheers daveName:  20171111_192758.jpg

    Wow, serious high relief on that coin! I can't imagine finding something so old besides my mother-in-law (jk). Congratulations on some great finds!

    pukka find Dave mate,that roman is sweet as a nut son.
    we nick a few Romans over here in new England every now and again dropped by the colonists, back before old leather ass died.
    got one last year, Arcadian the great 326 AD.
    its funny actually, me ol finger and thumb still has a box of roman coins i found when i was a nipper, i should really get her to bring them over with her next time she comes...prolly worth a bob or two to the septic tanks.
