    Cru'Team 2014 Results - Another Year, Another Adventure...

    Thanks, as always to our somewhat silent partner Land-Mag for his continued assistance this past year.

    Below is 490 hours over 109 days detecting + Dads 392.5 = 882.5 hours

    Coin Type----------- 2007--2008--2009---2010----2011----------2012------------2013--------2014

    Celtic Bronze ----------1 -----0 ---- 0 ------6 -------5 -------------3------------------3----------3
    Celtic Silver ------------1 -----3 ---- 2 ------1 ------ 3 -------------0------------------1----------1
    Celtic Gold ------------ 0 -----2----- 3------0 ------ 0 ------------- 3------------------0----------2
    Roman Bronze-------- 234---510--1193 --1013---1386-----------785----------------879 ------1460
    Roman Silver ---------- 8-----14----20-----22------20-------------19-----------------21 --------26

    Buttons -
    2009 - 3124
    2010 - 2542
    2011 - 2635
    2012 - 2069
    2013 - 1357
    2014 - 1557

    It's always hard to judge a good year by Stats alone & not include the combination of the following factors wish list,favourite, historic, & rarity. However, this year has been one of the best in many ways:
    Got Wish List No.5 - Richard I 'The Lion Heart' Penny
    Highest Ever Roman Bronze Coin Count
    Highest Ever Roman Silver Coin Count
    Highest Ever Saxon Artefacts - 37 in total (beats our previous 33)
    Our Rarist & best Site - Finding an unknown Saxon Settlement


    Below are pictures of some of the highlights:
    Tub of Scrap Buttons
    Silver Denarius of Clodius Albinus AD195-96
    Italian Medieval Lead Papal Bulla, Pope Clement V, AD 1305-1315
    13th C Champlevé Limoges Altar cross Mount
    Celtic Potin from circa 100BC - 2nd one ever recorded
    Baldred Penny AD823-25, Moneyer DUNUN of Rochester, only one recorded with this reverse moneyer spelling.
    2 Celtic Gold Coins
    Unique to date/Unclassified Saxon Wrist Clasp
    A few Roman Bronze Coins

    I used to keep stats like that years ago, but they didn't look anything like yours. Those are some incredibly big numbers Cru. You're finding more roman coins than than most everyday coin shooters find lincoln memorials. And over 500 hammered coins in the last few years is bordering on the ridiculous. Many congrats on not just the finds , but all the hard work in the field and behind the scenes. Hope you can top those numbers in 2015, if that's possible. Good luck to you guys.
    MY BOOK HAS SOLD OUT OF ALL 1200+ COPIES IN LESS THAN 4 MONTHS. NO 2ND PRINTING IS ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME. THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE THIS PROJECT A SUCCESS.

    Yes, the Roman Bronze Coin count is like getting an everage of 4 coins every single day. That will be near impossible to beat because we will never get the 'stars' (fields) to line up again, like they did last year.

    Thanks Cru for posting up the totals for 2014 and nothing short of amazing, especially the Roman coinage totals! I can honestly say that looking over the pictured finds gets the mind dreaming of finding something remotely close to what you have found on one the trips over to play in the dirt.
