This is how I found my second Gold Coin of the year:

Friday I found a Bishop Stortford 1667 token. This token sparked an interest by Shaun7 who lives quite near that place. He looked up a couple of farms in the area, gave them a ring, & the rest is history! THANKS SHAUN ;D

I was extremely lucky to find this, the field we tried are some of the hardest I have done! I was pleased with the Medieval Buckle.

Its a Gold Half Guinea 1777. Strange thing is that a few years ago Cru'dad had a Guinea of the same date - spooky!

After Shaun7 dropped me home, I went a did a short hunt on two different fields.

the first we only had a few buttons & 1 scrappy.

We decided to do two strip of freshly harvested Wheat, & detected whilst he was combining. Glad we did, I had one of the best large roman coins I have ever found. The price is not too far of the Gold one from earlier - what a day! (hard to picture but its very nice!)

WTG, that is one magnificent looking gold piece :notworthy:

The only thing stopping me this year is my body! I haven't even started the proper season yet, the Wheat is only just coming in. We are ready to ramp up the Roman count & take some holidays on the fields :icon_thumright:

If gold coins were for effort, he deserved one today. We had some tough long stubble fields to hit our way through!
