    Donna, this part of Europe where I live has witnessed a fierce struggle between the Ottoman Empire and the Hasburg monarchy for about 300 years..Both sides had large numbers of mercenaries from all over Europe.I often find coins from that period, coming from England, France, Italy..etc..Sometimes, on the same field,you can find mixed coins and artefacts from Turkey, Russia, Holland for example..But, all golden coins which I found at this field,were bent for some reason..

    Some good finds in 2021..
    As always, you don't disappoint. I am still amazed at your "finds"! Some of them go beyond "amazed"! Keep up the good work, my friend. I'll keep wiping the drool off my chin, lol. Not because I'm jealous, but because I'm "amazed"!
