    No.5 - Updated

    Well after getting a Roman Silver & hammered yesterday, I was bedding in for a tough day. However, on my first run & my first find (dug a few bits of rubbish) was a tiny Gold Celtic coin. My 5th Gold Coin this year (our 6th) Took me 20 years to get my first Celtic Gold, now Dad & I have had 5 in the last 2 years
    We have done this land many times & its full of junk from an old WWI era allotment, we keep clearing the junk every year & it has finally paid of. This coin is no bigger than 10mm.
    (10 man hours)Dad & I.

    How are we going to beat this year

    It was bad enough not being able to keep track of your posts, now I can't even keep track of your gold! Can't imagine what your year post will look like.

    OK, enough accolades................... WOW
    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
