    Found a Gold Cache ! But called it Bad Luck ?

    'Bit of bad luck!' Treasure hunters GUTTED after gold coins revealed as FAKE from TV show

    TWO HAPLESS treasure hunters thought they had struck it rich when they found a hoard a gold coins - only to discover they were fakes buried for the TV comedy Detectorists.

    Metal detectorist Paul Adams thought he had found roman coins worth £250,000 in a field in Suffolk

    Metal detectorist Paul Adams began dancing around a field, crying out 'Roman gold! Roman gold!' when he stumbled upon a handful of ancient coins.
    Colleague Andy Sampson dashed across to look and to their astonishment within minutes they had unearthed 54 Roman gold coins, potentially worth £250,000.
    The pair spent 24 hours believing the treasure to be genuine and they even started thinking about what to blow their windfall on.

    But the next day an expert told them he feared the coins were fake before it was confirmed they had been left in a field by the film crew making the hit BBC series Detectorists, starring Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones.

    If I had to find fake coins, I would love for it to be a cache from The Detectorists TV show! I would love to have one of those with the provenance as being used in the show.

    Yea I Think it was the First Or Second Episode in Season 3, When Lance Got Paid for his Gold find &
    Bought a Bunch of gold Coins To get rid of the "Curse of the Gold" By burying Them. I was surprised
    They didn't retrieve them Immediately after The scene
