Think I got lucky?

Post by Baffles » Wed Sep 11, 2019 11:12 pm

New to the hobby and not even got my detector yet.

Today I called in at 2 farms. First one told me no but the second one had no issues with me detecting and is happy to fill in a form saying so.

It's not a huge plot of land but I'm just happy I have it!

I'm looking at using the NCMD search agreement form (paid member) but curious what others aim for when filling out the "% of the value" and "over the value of".

My advice would be discuss it with the farmer, mine just said he'd be happy to split anything really valuable 50/50 but he was more interested in finding out about his land. Show them all your finds, see if they want to keep any of the smaller stuff for themselves. It's better to sacrifice a coin or two here and there to maintain a good relationship, word of mouth amongst farmers could take you a long way. The chances of finding anything so valuable it would become an issue are very small.

Secured the permission today! Paperwork is signed! Confirmed a 50/50 split on any treasure finds.

Went out for a few hours on the land and found a number of iron things. Nuts, bolts, tent pegs and a few bits of copper cable. I dug almost every signal since I'm new ::g

The weather was amazing too so all in all a great day was had!!
