Part II: Revisiting the "Virgin" Site of Swedish Tavern, page 69

Metal Detecting Old Copper Coins

As I tried to "vacuum" the spot to the last coin before our departure, I managed to unearth a few more copper coins.

Also I recovered a less common Swedish copper coin - 1 fyrk (1/4 Öre), of Christina's period.

Another Peter I's copper coin was "caught" at last. I had to look its Cyrillic numeral up in the date-conversion table, and determined it to be 1713. Finding this coin concluded my interesting metal detecting day at the Swedish tavern site. Too bad the coin was in poor condition, not worth of taking its picture after cleaning.
