Part I - Metal Detecting at the Swedish Tavern Site, page 27

Finding 1/6 Öre Coins, Russian and Swedish Relics of Different Periods

I went back to where I stopped detecting and back to my "busy railroad of ideas." ...Considering the E-Trac's amazing ability in detecting a coin partially masked by a small iron target, I realized that the "hammered out" sites with the highest concentration of nails would be now the most productive.

That is where the E-Trac would put its full potential into effect. Now I knew where I could test my idea soon - near the railroad but not too close to it! The cultural level within ten meters to the railroad grade was destroyed long time ago... Another quick stop to pick up a coin!

My Coin-Find #7

Copper Coin Detected

Obverse of 1666 Halvöring

Swedish 1666 1/6 Ore Coin Obverse

My quick stop for a coin was prolonged as I received another non-ferrous signal and dug up a bronze signet ring with a broken band, circa early 18th century.

Bronze Signet Ring

My next relic find was a copper artifact identical to the one I found on our first visit here.

Bronze Relic Dug

Traces of Silver on Relic's Front

Sword Belt Plaque or Mount

Just like the first one, this artefact was 4cm (1.5") long, initially silver plated, had a rivet at the back and looked like some decorative strap end of an open-work design or a mount for harness. I needed to do some research to ID this find.
