Not really sure what to think about this one really,i think i will just leave it at that ;)
Detecting these days its best to listen,learn as much knowledge as you can and say now't and post even less.

Some of the detectors i use DFX,T2,Fisher TW-5 2 Box,Crossbow Pulse,B3,Silver Sabre11,Arado120b,and others +many many coils.

Im sure the experts will quantify the coins authenticity, the proculus posted on here a short while ago was the actual coin on wildwinds website and has since been withdrawn,cd. :-/

Hi guys, I get the impression that some of you think this coin of Proculus is a bit of a wind up.I can assure you that it definately is the real deal .It was found last Wednesday(7th)in East Yorkshire by me.It has been recorded by the p.a.s. at the Yorkshire museum and on UKDFD.The coin will be picked up from me on Friday by Dix Noonan Webb and will be auctioned next March.I'll keep you informed of any further developements. :)

Hi yorcol , sorry if i sounded a bit disbeleiving in my first post, but its just strange there only being one coin ever known of Proculus and then two turn up on the forum in a week, if you see what i mean, not suggesting anything is wrong with your coin mate, its just strange the way things happened, all the best with it, an outstanding find :D :D :D ::g

Nice one ::g . The thing is, 98% of us haven't got a clue what were looking at 98% of the time ! :D :D . Frustrating when ppl don't share one's excitement, but thats how it is. Congratulations. ::g . Look forward to seeing the auction result.. B-)
