Part II: Revisiting the "Virgin" Site of Swedish Tavern, page 51

Metal Detecting Old Copper Coins

...Soon another coin signal came in, and I unearthed a copper coin.

Another Swedish Copper Coin

The coin was of the same size as the previous coin and had similar displaced design visible through dirt.

1/6 Öre

Another 1/6 Ore Coin Found

Because over 100 million "halvörings" were coined, and no "fyrks" - 1/4 Öre coins, were issued during the reign of Charles XI (see details on page 14), the 1/6 Öre is the most common coin find at the sites of Swedish taverns that operated during that period.

Swedish Copper Coin Detected

Now it was obvious to me that I had discovered a "hot pocket" at this site, and the copper coins were turning up one by one. But what about the silver coins?

1668 1/6 Ore Coin, Karl XI

I was just about to start thinking about the process of materialization of thought, when Irina called me over. By the tone of her voice, I knew she was excited about something (a coin signal?) and wanted me to take a picture of recovery process. By the time I got out of the trance state of mind and reached her, she has already held a dug coin in her hands.
