I'd beg to differ on that one, I'm not sure what the difference in the alloy is between your average grot and the follis but 9 out of 10 of the ones I find come out in pretty good condition whereas the grots have suffered badly. Wink

Geoff the larger roman coins I find are always better condition, out of about 100 small coins I may get 2-4 for the coin tray, but as you say they are very poor....

Im not sure if iv shown these 3 coins next to the grot before, but im taking it there follis? The condition is how they came out, iv even left the mud on, I haven't chose them from a bunch of coins there the latest 3 over a year or so......... Il use this as a chance to get the mint id if any one can help.....Cheers Wink
