My second ever hammered was an Aethelred II, damaged, which I gave to the farmer.

Most of my cut halfs etc are found when I'm really keen, early on and when I know i'm on a good site. At other times I miss them as coughs and splutters.....

about 20 hammies to a cut for me.. :g9:

For the past 12 years I have found on average 1 hammy a month. This year so far i have found over 180. Mind you I was lucky enough to find a hoard of 170 Henry III coins in June. Just shows you that if a once a week detectorist like me can be lucky enough to stumble over a hoard it could be you next!

I go metal detecting to firstly uncover the history of our great country, secondly to socialize with friends and thirdly to take in the beauty of the country side and take in clean fresh air. If I had to constantly count numbers I would have to buy an abacus. Happy detecting and pleasant dreams.

I'm slowly starting to find silver coins now that I know what to listen for on my DFX and T2, so there is every chance that I'll get around to finding a hammered eventually...

History Hunter, all in all it boils down to one thing, if you want to find a hammered silver, a gold stater, an imperatorial roman silver denari, or anything you care to think about, you have to walk over it to get it.
