  4. Nice find, I don’t know when it was done but these coins were buried to be found as treasure, the extent of the wear is as such they must have been out of circulation long before they were buried but what’s more telling is the fact some have punched hole to be worn as medallions you’d only do this to coins no longer in circulation or living memory of them, the amount of wear is as such most will only be worth the scrap value,

  5. i’ve collected coins for over forty years and only seen coins with this amount of wear that have been good luck charms and have spent a lifetime in someone’s pocket and then a lifetime in their sons pocket and found on stalls in a box of odds and ends for no more that scrap value, nice find though.

  14. I just bought my second detector yesterday and I have to tell you, you have lit a fire in me that is burning hot. I can’t imagine how it must have felt to recover that cache. I was on the edge of my seat just watching the video. Thank you so much for posting this. It is by far the BEST video I have seen. The anticipation was thicker than Heinz ketchup.Talk about inspiring. I sincerely mean it when I say congratulations and well done!

  19. Beleive it or not, it is real. I was there at this organized hunt and got called from Mike becasue he knew I was take pictures of finds fresh from the ground. When I saw the relic in the bottom of the hole and we all thought it was an oval belt plate of some sort I decided to use the video on my camera. It will also be published in the book our club is close to finishing on relics dug in our area around Savannah.

  20. Need!!!

  21. @crapinabap – I doubt that very much. England changed its coinage in the late 60s, and you will not find much money older than that in current usage. Please. Know your own history. We know ours.

  22. Amazing. I laughed at your hand shaking.
    I myself found a wedding ring the other day(first ring ever). It happened to belong to the wife of a major landowner. I got permission to search on his land as a favour for returning the ring. But I really wanted to ask what type of detector you use? I myself use a Garrett Ace 250, seems to do the job good enough.

  23. @crapinabap Yeah i guess after the Nazi’s kicked the crap out of ya’ll, and America saved you and rebuilt your country, I guess that maybe we didn’t have enough time to rebuild any of your bombed mints. You should complain to the UN about that maybe than we can get you some new coin factories.
