    DAY 7 - GOLD HAMMERED -UPDATED - UPDATED

    This is why I took most of my holiday this week. Who needs sun,sea & sand (apart from beach detectorist ) Hit the right field at the right time

    I have just got back from this mornings hunt & had to share, the rest I will post after the PM hunt.

    Its my earliest, best, most valuable Gold coin so far & doubles my Dad's Qrter Noble

    I AM PUMPED - I thought this year may produce a gold but was beginning to lose faith.

    UPDATED

    (to keep everyone happy)
    Dutch coin of EDWARD III period
    Cica 1351 - 1352
    HALF NOBLE

    3.32gms of 21-22 Cwt Gold.
    These are so rare, I don't have the proper books to id (nor did the experts I spoke to). I am not worried about a full Dutch Provence id. Dutch is good enough However if you know, I will be happy to hear?
    Valued at auction 300-400 + but depends on full ID

    It was badly bent by the plough & I carefully unfolded it (I don't recommend this). Its chewed up abit but at least its all there!

    FIND OF A LIFETIME.

    Awesome! Nothing more to say about that!!!

    You are very brave to have straightened the bend!

    I told you GOLD was going to be found soon! How deep was it? What kind of signal?

    Great find, Kev! You were brave to unbend it...that probably was scary.

    Good signal, sounded like deep lead. Got better when I scrap off the lose mud, then about 4inches deep.

    It was scary but I have practiced on silver many times. I knew this was high grade thin gold which would bend more easily than silver. 1 rule: never bend it in the centre of the bend as its already weak.

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    That is an Outstanding, Fantastic, Fabulous, and Extremely Wonderful Find! Again, English fields are the best! I am moving to England and I am going to follow you around! The other day, when I answered your post on my thread, I wished you luck in finding Roman Gold. Okay, it's not Roman, but it's GOLD and so cool! Now get back out there and find more!
    Congratulations!

    I still have the Gold Roman 5 year plan. It may happen, but its like winning the lottery & I don't gamble anymore.

    That is absolutely beautiful Kev. Just think of the histroy behind that coin, who owned it, how it got lost, etc. Truly an outstanding find. Look forward to your afternoon post.
