    OK I know not up to @galba68 wonderful finds..:D....But still been fun...
    Bit of a mix.....General cival war bullets, a lovely silver officers button from around 1842, a couple more bronze buttons. Belt buckle, thimble, lead balls and a nice piece of ceramic...Couple of pretty amulets and a wonderful old bronze earring with red stone-Maybe Roman or at least medieval...
    Then I returned to an area where I knew there were Roman coins and picked up a few..

    Was hoping to try and ID at least the ruler so any help or feedback appreciated..
    Not in the best condition but it's a nice feeling when you pull them out of the ground.
    Coin 1 (17.5mm) ..... Looks to be an Augustus? Reverse shot! but the portraits quite nice.

    I believe you are correct...

    Roman Legionary field testing ...early use in launching Roman SLING STONES.

    It definitely looks like the first emperor to me. Where's the reverse?

    The other coins look like Constantius II / FH type small late AE3/4, Constantine I / campgate type and unknown Severan empperor / probably Marcianopolis in Moesia Inferior with eagle reverse.
