2014 has been a bit slow for significant finds,
lots of early 20th C silver from one site, and a nice 1723 Woods Hibernia HP)))


   
2013  yielded My fourth Mass Silver, a 1652 Oak Threepence, Noe-28.
Its condition is exceptional, even uncleaned it appears finer than the best specimens I can locate on the web.

He called it 'Woods first prototype Halfpenny', fewer than 30 known.
sTRUCK WITH THE LEGEND 'vTILE DVLCI' LATIN FOR THE uSEFUL AND THE SWEET,

These are rare and beautiful buttons,
