    2000 YEAR OLD GOLD COIN...UPDATE

    Today was my last day off as I return to work tomorrow (after an extended X-Mas Holiday ). Thankfully there was a break in the wet & very windy weather. I'm glad I didn't try yesterday, as the only road/lane to the field had a huge tree blown across it (cut & cleared now), must have been yesterday which would have blocked my way back with the bike.
    I spent 4 hours on my own continuing the rather difficult land I started to grid recently. I was having a bad few hours & my mind was dreaming up a likely good find from this field, the best I was hoping for was a complete Medieval Buckle. You never expect a Gold Coin but it was furthest from my mind & I had no clues that this field was going to do anything this good It's taken Dad & I over 2 years to find another Gold Coin, but I'm so glad 2012 is made already, so the pressure is off for the rest of the year

    Other finds of the day:
    4 Scrappy Roman Coins
    2 Lead Tokens
    Tudor Clothes Fastener (Rose)
    Leather Mount (circa 17th C) – Man in the moon & star to right
    17th C Lead Cap (powder flask)

    There are less than 50 Recorded examples of this type
    Celtic Gold Quarter Stater
    CUNOBELINE
    AD10-20AD
    Wild Type Horse Right

    Corn Ear
    VA-1935.01
    CA[MV]
    Minted - Camulodunum (Colchester)

    Let me tell you, I was so pleased with the coin, it got a Rex Hunt Kiss (but no throwing back)

    My first ever Celtic Gold Coin (some years ago) was this very same type, however it was a full Stater & this is a Quarter. So now I have the full set 8) - I pictured it next to my first coin to show how much smaller this one is

    Congratulations

    I bet that was a faint signal with such a tiny gold coin. You must have to dig a lot foil and other small bits chasing that kind of gold.

    I vary what I dig depending on the site. However, with this field I'm digging every signal (as its pretty sparce), which does include lots of foil & coke. My general approach is to clear everything. (I always hunt with no Disc & high Ses, as I like to hear every bit of iron etc..)

    Re: 2000 YEAR OLD GOLD COIN...

    Way to start out the year with a bang. Now anything else for the rest of the year is gravy.
    I’ve mentioned before that my new book can be a great holiday gift idea for a family member or friend, and I’ve noticed recently that many are purchasing a copy for that very purpose. However, time is running short, so anyone interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should do so in the next week to ensure delivery prior to Christmas. Ordering your copy is as simple as clicking on the PayPal link at the bottom and sending $59 + $5 shipping. If you’d like your copy to be personalized by the author, or just signed, please indicate so in the PayPal notes section. Anyone not familiar with this comprehensive publication can check out the info provided below for a detailed description of its contents plus comments from buyers. Thanks for your support.

    Many of you were aware that I've been working on a major book project for close to 3 years, and now it's finally been published. This book, entitled “DISCOVERING VIRGINIA’S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS — AComprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation”, is 400 pagesin length and packed with nearly 1000 color photos of 16th thru 18th centuryartifacts I’ve personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with manyquality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. I alsobelieve it’s the first of its kind in this subject matter area to hit themarket. But don’t be misled by the title as this is a must-have not only forcolonial enthusiasts, but for all novice and veteran relic hunters as well as itcovers a wide range of pertinent topics including research methods, how tosecure permission, reading and searching sites, finding and excavating trashpits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, andmuch more. It basically doubles as both a “how-to” manual as well as a colonialartifact “encyclopedia” covering all major categories to help more preciselyidentify and date your finds. It also contains 40 sidebars scattered throughoutthe book that expand on various topics of interest plus a listing of “SuggestedResources” at the end of most chapters that identifies other publications,websites, technical papers, etc, for additional reading if desired. The bookalso includes 9 appendices to provide supplemental material. It’s alsoprinted in all color on high quality, glossy stock and is contained within aheavy and attractive hardcover.
    If you're interested in ordering a copy you can click on the PayPal link below. It's cost is $59 + $5 for shipping within the continental US. If you’d like to check out some sample pages from the book, as well as scan the Table of Contents to get a better feel for what the book is about, you can click on the following link: http://colonialartifacts.com/2017/10/book-description/
    Thanks for looking ....

    It was a banner day for me, Dad & I could not have tried much harder for this & it pops up in a random field which if we had any other choice we would not have done. It's not a site, it's in the middle of no-where, & only a few promising signs However, this proves why I do like to try the hard ground, because it may only have 1 good find but it's always worth trying. (mostly so you can cross it off the mental map)
