I have just posted our 30th gold find of the year onto this years gold page including two pairs of gold choppers !!
A brilliant first half of the season total. Just a week to go before we take a break until Feb.
Great new clear plastic tubs to protect finds
Alaskan Steve just found a small gold sheet to go with his possible ‘find of the year’ relic below that is the
first Celtic gold votive offering find we have ever made. Celtic gold money strictly does not exist as they were
all offering rings, what a huge chunk of gold. Min Mindy, our top female detectorist in club, popped her 12th
gold coin with a full Adde gold stater as a disclaimed hoard addendum. Then Virg Marg on the very last hour
of her hunt on Friday popped her first ever Celtic gold find with a very crisp Dub gold qtr stater. I ordered
up a load of screw top plastic small containers from Amazon that are brilliant to protect finds when they
go into the museum for recording. They are great to protect find like Cal Gary’s neat medieval gold ring with
red stone posted below. If the ring is finally disclaimed then our jeweler can fix it back to look like new. I have
posted tons more great hammered and silver + relics to the latest finds page. Link below.
