    Inscribed Celtic Gold Stater...Update....Full ID...



    Hello everybody

    At last we managed to get out for a days hunting the day didn't start that good though a puncture on the Jeep put paid to a early start We finally got to a couple of fields we have been watching over the Winter, expecting them to have both been ploughed by now...they had but were both way to rough to detect
    We adopted plan B and slipped back onto the Roman Villa site, although this field has yielded pretty poor results this year, it always has the potential to give-up something SPETACULAR...today it did...for me

    Celtic Gold Stater .....Corieltavi Inscribed Stater VOLISIOS DVMNOCOVEROS..AD 20-35... I'm still in shock, I couldn't post last night, due to a Computer Virus ...and it didn't stop there

    Michael chipped in with a broken Roman Silver, then a full one I plucked a cut half Hammered(long cross)..

    Then Michael had his find of the day...a Viking embedded coin weight (needs carefull cleaning) these are a quite rare item and fetch a few quid

    Next it was me turn with a nice Roman Silver laying right on the top not quite sure yet of the ID, needs a bit of cleaning, I will update the post as time Goes on

    Anyway enjoy the pictures of our AMAZING 5 hours detecting the Yorkshire soil

    Here is some imformation on Viking Coin weights

    Congrats on your gold stater. I couldn't imagine finding a coin that old. I'm just starting to get comfortable with relics from the 18Th century. It leaves me numb thinking about the age of your stater, what a beauty... Arty

    Thanks we have had a few lean months, and this was a turn up for the books as we thought our Villa site was not going to produce this turn of the plough just goes to show, you just have to keep trying

    Some find there! What a way to offset the rain and the tire.
    I noticed you are digging in a planted field. How does that work with the farmers or is it just some generic planting?

    Thanks .....we replant the seedlings, the farmer lets us go on all his crop. We have done this for years, and it makes no difference to the growing process
