Dusted off my detector & hit the hills Sunday. After finding a piece of cane boiling cauldron & a square hand made nail, I got a solid hit that promised maybe gold. Couldn't dig because of hard ground & no pick. I got so excited that I hurried home, had supper & forgot about it until Thursday(today).
Front marked with a crown and what I said on the caption except a large 25 (for regiment). Back is marked CHARLES JENNENS & LONDON.
Tried researching & get dates of 1800-32/1832-1912. Another site gives 1805-15. Can anybody give me accurate dating (Scott)? No plume on back.
St. Maarten/St. Martin has only been held briefly by the Limeys in the past so it caught me off guard.
