    Did your buddy get to keep any ? Or is he still at the Site in Germany ?

    Or what if he was, as you say, in some sort of a "50/50" spot, does he go scurrying off to the nearest govt. official to hand in his 50% ?

    Sounds like he was in the woods, in the middle of nowhere.
    I was waiting for the 'legality ' ? .

    Yeap, not wise to post on an open forum. Ask the German Tneter's about the Laws, but at the very least he would need an Export Licence to take it out of the EU. So, unless that has happened its illegally in the US, hence why posting it here is asking for trouble, even if I do think its a great find that I will never get.

    HI crusader , considering Britain has taken relics from many countries for hundreds of years during times of invasion and liberation I think your riding a high horse. TP

    Well this was years and years ago before they refined the current metal detecting laws in Germany. Since I returned to the states the laws are much stricter. Still would love to go back and hunt as there is so much more history in the dirt over there than in the US

    In this particular case, I was not referring to FUTURE hunting , yet-to -happen. I was referring to PAST TENSE hunting. Where the O.P. is showing coins he ALREADY found.

    And then just musing, if someone ELSE comes on and says "50/50 with the govt", or "md'ing wasn't/isn't allowed there". Then just musing: What does the person/OP do then ? In the case where he's ALREADY dug them (in a past-tense fashion).

    Go back and re-bury them ? Go give 50% to a govt. official ?

    That's all.

    No high horse, just the facts as always. It's a bit of a warning so he can take it down & not get into trouble.

    You might be right; although I found they had some of the detecting laws established, not sure what they could do. As far as I was concerned it was finders keepers as I found these in the middle of the woods not on anyone’s private property.
