Re: A rare hoard of 2,000 year-old gold coins found

Same type of coins as my hoard back in 2003 (see my avatar) 39 of them so this hoard is almost a quarter of mine :g39: but their one was valued at two and a half times more :g64:

Re: thors hammer and viking finds

It would be great to see all these finds from my home county of Lincolnshire but I would need to travel for over two hours each way just to get to the display venue in Nottingham!!! Why Nottingham when Lincoln has a fantastic museum with space to display this collection? :g64: :g64: :g64:

It will have been disclaimed after the coroner declared it treasure :g50:

Re: hunter diigs up bishops gold ring in farmers field

Re: Livery buttons

First one is a hunting button, second is a General Service military button. The third needs some research to find the family that used this crest.

Re: Oak Island treasure hunter on quest for Royal gold

I have lived and detected around the wash area for nearly thirty years so I know how hard it can be to find a site there.
