Thread: Massive Roman/Saxon Site - Day 5 - XP DEUS HITS GOLD...

    Massive Roman/Saxon Site - Day 5 - XP DEUS HITS GOLD...

    What can I say after only 5 hunts with my new machine.

    We gridded for 5.5 hours & got our equal best Roman Coin count (for this site) again!

    The gold coin was found on my second run & it sounded like a deep coin. Not that deep by some standards (about 6inches) but it was on its side. It was a total shock, because this site has had no Celtic coins & nothing older than 1st AD, until now!!

    I had a thought in my head for sometime that my next great find, I would just casually walk over to Dad & say 'hay look at this ''OK'' coin'.....& then enjoy the reaction. Well that went out the window & my gold coin happy muddy boot jig popped out...Dad was struggling for a guess, because we have been hoping for a nice sceat or hammered & the silver is just not showing, so as a last ditch guess he stouted 'gold' - 'yessss'(I said & handed it over)

    Sorry the dirt pictures didn't work out, my camera for outdoors is cheap.

    33 Roman Bronze Coins
    Roman Pin Head
    Saxon Pin Head
    Roman Bracelet pieces
    1st C Roman Fibula

    Notice the lack of pottery, as we grid off the main area.

    Celtic Gold Stater, (mid to late 1st century BC), Whaddon Chase type, devolved head of Apollo, rev. horse right, winged object above and wheel with six spokes below. ABC2442 (Latest book states Scarce, did a quick look, less than 100 recorded)

    Like all my Celtic Coin this will be recorded properly with the acedemics so as to help further study of their distribution etc...

    Is it my imagination or is the gold coin in near perfect condition, as in dropped right after it was made?
    That is just awesome! Congrats!

    Hi Cru' & Cru'Dad,
    I just voted "Banner" for you on this great find. I think it is a shoo-in for you as #21!
    Great coins and artifacts, with a lot of work (fun) involved.
    Continued Good Luck!,

    Big congrats on your EXCELLENT recovery!!

    I'll agree with "EasternShoreMetal" . . . the artistic design on that Stater is amazing.
    Since that is an isolated find, how would you rate your chances of retaining that for your personal collection?

    I wish I could have seen your father's expression, I know he MUST be proud of your recovery. . . that Stater is just icing on the cake.

    Again, congrats

    If there is a lifetime limit for Banners, Crusader will be the first to petition that the number be raised! Congrats, love the Stater!
