    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

    Re: 2000 YEAR OLD GOLD COIN...

    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.
    Spanish Silver Totals
    Cut Pieces = 18
    Half Reals = 27
    1 Reals = 11
    2 Reales = 6
    8 Reales = 1
    2 Reale Cobs = 2
    Other Early Silver Coins
    1797 & 1803 Draped Bust Dimes
    1830 Capped Bust 5 cents
    1661 Hammered silver King Leopold
    1697 William III 6-pence

    Space prevents me from adding other buttons, coins, and relics

    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.
    TOTAL COLONIAL SILVER COINS DUG: 193
    - Hammered silver coins (pre-1645): 22 (including 8 sixpences from the 1500s)
    - Spanish cobs: 22
    - Cut silver pieces: 87
    - Other whole colonial silver coins: 59
    - Colonial silver counterfeits: 3
    OLDEST COLONIAL SILVER COIN DUG: 1563 Elizabeth I sixpence
    MOST RARE AND VALUABLE COLONIAL SILVER COIN DUG: 1659 Lord Baltimore sixpence

    NOTABLE COLONIAL COPPER COINS/JETTONS/TOKENS DUG:
    - Early 1600s jettons (3 dug)
    - 1600s Half penny trade token
    - 1650-75 Edward Jarvis "The George" tavern penny token (London)
    - 1670 Bristol merchant's farthing token
    - 1675 Charles II farthing
    - 1677-79 Charles II bawbee sixpence
    - 1694 W&M halfpenny (2 dug)

    - 1786 German 1 pfennig
    - 1700s French copper
    - Numerous 1700s undated or slicks

    ** All of these coins were dug at numerous colonial sites in southeast Virginia after securing property owner permission.

    ANNOUNCEMENT: I am anticipating that my new book entitled "A Comprehensive Guide to the Recovery, Identification and Preservation of Virginia's Colonial Artifacts" will be available sometime during the mid-to-late 2017 time frame. This hardcover volume, about 300 pages in length, will double as both a "how-to" manual as well as a colonial "encyclopedia", and will contain hundreds of color photos of artifacts I have personally recovered over the last 20 years. Updates will be provided as we get closer to the projected release date.

    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)
