    Silver hoards from Romania!

    Hello my name is Julian and i`m from Romania. Exactly two years ago I bought my first metal detector and I embraced this beautiful and noble hobby. I'm talking about a Garrett Euroace 350 which is a Garrett350 adapted to European soil. With joy I can say that in the two years this detector discovered two very important silver hoards wich i like to share with you.
    First in september 1 2013, the largest silver treasure ever discovered in Romania: 47,296 silver coins most from the reign of Sultan Murad II 1421-1451, weighing more than 120 pounds.The coins were in very good condition due to high purity silver alloy (97%) and the soil in which they spent the several hundred years. The coins are very little circulated.

    The second treasure found on Sunday 8 March 2015 is even more spectacular. Even though I kept my promise not to sell the Garrett 350, I entrusted it to my brother as I`m using DETECH Reacher. He found the first coin, so he's discoverer. I'm talking about 178 tetradrachme Geto-Dacian silver "Jiblea type" coins, plus a silver coin still unidentified. It may be one of the first Dacian imitations of Macedonian coins
    Tetradrahms weigh about 12 grams each, the singular coin about 5 grams. We do not know exactly the date of issue but is supposed to be around the 4th century before Christ.
    I`m not saying that the detector its very good but is freeking lucky.
    PS If its hard for you to understand this dont blame me, blame Google translate

    Wow...wow...wow...wow...wow and wow! That pretty much says it all. Congrats on two major Silver hoard finds! When you found the first one, did you keep on digging to see if the Mint that produced those coins was there as well? With that many coins, one would think it was with the coins!

    Wow, very cool. Can you tell us more about the first find and the pictures you shared? Were they all found together? Boxed or wrapped? (They are all very clean) The picture shows them on a blanket, maybe in a field, with a shovel and your detector there, but they are all very clean and some are in bags. The second set is more like what I expected...
