Thanks Ron

I did find 2 very worn coins, but I was so hot out in the field!

The landowners grandson who was doing the baling asked me to look for part of a ride on mower he had lost off the machine down at their other farm.

So I drove down the road to the other farm and found it within the area he had said it had dropped off the machine quite quickly.

He had inadvertently driven over the piece and pushed into the ground but the detector picked it up no problem with it being part of the cutting blade it was quite big.

Trust me I have no idea how my friend does it either.

Example:

"Coin that says ‘CNUT REX ANGLO’ on the obverse. This is Latin and translates simply as ‘Cnut, King of England’. This helps to immediately identify the ruler on the coin – King Cnut, an Anglo-Saxon King who ruled from 1017 – 1035."


"The reverse spells out ‘GODRIC ON GLEP’. This can be a more complicated inscription to decipher, but once again offers a lot of information. Coins at this time required the name of the moneyer (the person who struck the coin/owned the mint) to be stamped on them. In this example that would mean ‘Godric’. The ‘ON’ means ‘of’ in old English.

‘GLEP’ is the more confusing; this refers to the mint location. In old English the ‘P’ is actually a letter called a ‘Wynn’. This looks more like a ‘Y’ with a line across the top, and has since been adopted as a P. Confusing things further, this letter actually refers to a ‘W’, making ‘GLEP’, ‘GLEW’. This refers to the Gloucester Mint. Fortunately, working out the mint is relatively easy with a quick search online, with dedicated numismatics recording the many mints that existed at this time.

So, this means the coin should actually be read as ‘GODRIC ON GLEW’ and in full, ‘Godric of Gloucester’."
