Four Russian wire coins
« on: November 05, 2011, 06:12:34 PM »
I found 4 russian wire coins in same field. I'm pretty sure the first one is Peter I the Great kopek about 1700's but what's the other coins?

Thanks

Hi!
Second is very interesting kopeck of Feodor Mikhailovich, interesting variant of the legend.
Other - are the same Peters as the first one.
Good luck to You, really great finds!!

When you say "found in the same field", do you mean you used a metal detector?

Thanks a lot!

Yes. I found silver Grivennik 1784 in same spot also.

Excellent spot. I am amazed these tiny coins give you a signal. Was the Grivennik reasonably preserved? I have seen so many coins half eaten away by fertilizer...

Those little coins gives very clear silver signal 5cm or closer. Maybe there is more in deeper on the field ;D

Grivennik's backround is ok but frontside is very slick.

If you think there's more down there, come back next year. Capillary action will eventually drive them to the surface. I would have thought the ground is too hard for digging already. Some people here use a signal enhancer to trace very small coins. Works fine, but you also find every rusty nail in the field.

Too bad about one side of that grivennik, but it's still a great piece to find. Thanks for showing it. With your luck, you'll have another chance.

Great achievement !

I can understand the feeling & excitment when you find "surprise gift as coin" after hard work of searching fields.

If you don't bother can you share how many coins and artifacts you found until now.

It is my dream to pursue metal detecting - an insteresting hobby.
Cheers ;D

Most of them are just cleaned with water. Here in Southern-Finland almost all copper coins are not so good condition anyway :-\

Grade is not so important for a coin you found yourself. The coin has a story to tell. Don't hesitate to post your coin finds here. I, for one, like coin puzzles and I am sure there are others.
