    I don't remember exactly, but it was a good(ish) signal, only being about 2 or so inches deep. I try & learn all the sounds but I'm not fussy, I dig most signals especially iffy ones & clear plenty of junk including most iron. I don't think about it long, I just dig. Speed is my secret to UK field hunting. Get the junk in the pouch quickly & move on.

    Re: No.5 - Updated

    UPDATE:

    Update on recorded examples (x10 for real figures)
    Up to 2005 there were 42 others of this type in the Index, I don't have the recent cards to hand but by now there will be around 50; when Van Arsdell was putting his catalogue together there were only a dozen or so, hence the 'extremely rare' rating he gives it, nowadays it would be classed as either very scarce or rare.
    The TASC in panel quarters were almost certainly struck alongside the TASCIO RIGON staters near the end of Tasciovanus' reign, so it probably dates to 1-10 AD or thereabouts.
