    MY OLDEST GOLD COIN!!!

    Most of this week has been sub-zero temperatures & the ground was frozen to about 3 inches but the snow didn't start until after we had finished 4 hours hunting new fields. We tried 3 of the 4 sprayed off fields (failed crops) which are close to our Roman Sites but we have never tried. I got the shock of my life when 1 hour into the hunt & whilst wandering about the 2nd field I dug my oldest coin ever We went on to grid this area with no other signs, including no lead. So someone was looking over me today & my Gold streak continues...

    Other finds:
    USA Lead Seal - Meat Inspection (WWI-WWII ?)
    1836 Silver Four Pence - William IV
    1854 Cinq Centimes
    Really nice complete & still ringing Crotal Bell

    Gallic War Type circa 55BC
    Gold Stater
    Gallo-Belgic E - imported from Gaulish tribe of Ambiani
    Just over 6g of Gold
    VA56-1

    These coins were produced for payment to mercenary for one of the most famous Celtic battles in Roman History. Lead by a great Celtic Warrior called Vercingetorix against the armies of Julius Ceasar. It amazes me to think how & why this was imported into our country across the sea for trade or by warriors fleaing Europe to a safe island.

    This coin now equals Dads oldest coin & is nearly a matching pair, other than mine is a VA56-1 & Dads is a VA54-1. 8)

    Amasing find from the time of the "father" of the cartoon heroe Asterix

    I would do almost anything to find one of those, but wouldn´t be likely at my place.

    That is simply outstanding! Many congrats on an unbelieveable find.
    MY BOOK HAS JUST SOLD OUT OF ALL 1200 COPIES IN LESS THAN 4 MONTHS. NO 2ND PRINTING IS ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME. THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE THIS PROJECT A SUCCESS.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that my new book is doing great and is well on its way to being sold out with almost 1000 copies selling in only 3 months, and it's unlikely the remaining inventory will last more than a few weeks. There will definitely not be a 2nd printing,
    so if you have any interest in obtaining a signed copy I would strongly recommend not delaying. For a detailed description of its contents plus some sample page views you can click on the link below. Many thanks to all those who purchased a copy and helped make this project a success.

    So, singles don't really count as treasure, right?

    Nice coin. I guess that field requires a more scrutinizing!

    One more thing, if you keep getting banner nominations it will take a full minute to get past your entries because your avatar will be about a foot long. Cheers and keep at it.
