He's super cool and it's the history that he's the most interested in, but I'm definitely going to be putting something together to give him as a huge thank you for the hunt. And he's already invited me back for as many digs as I want to do too!
    That's great! After the high grass is cut you should have plenty to choose from for his display

    Don't know that I've ever seen so many "speechless" comments in one thread before, but it's a worthy set of finds here. Takes the breath away and makes words pointless when we look across the pictures of your excellent post. It is, for most, at best a once in a lifetime hunt; for many, a never in a lifetime hunt.

    Congrats and cheers to you mate -- you found treasure indeed!
