Euro Ace Roman Coin Hoard 300 roman radiates

Post by coinhunteruk » Tue Apr 09, 2013 6:22 pm

::g Well what can I say " been detecting for about 5 months now and have found my first hoard"

Went out for a days detecting as per most days off, cold but dry !
As the end of the day come near and with just a pocket full of lead bits and pieces was pretty gutted in not finding a single coin !
I started heading back to the car , I crossed this random field on the way back so decided to turn on my machine and before I new it I had a signal " dug down just a couple of inches and pulled out a roman Radiate ! Well chuffed a coin for the day I was happy .. :D

I carried on walking and done this another 4 times , so as you can imagine I was thinking I was in a nice little hotspot. ( day ended and went home )
Next day went straight back to the same spot and started digging more ! at this point it was a little to easy going so I decided to detect a certain area and they coming out left right and centre all roman and mostly bronze ... ::g (current day 100 roman radiates)
Next day I took off from work and contacted the owner of the land and called my FLO , as this was a scattered hoard I agreed with my flo to only dig down in the top soil just incase there was any vessel left in the ground.

As three days went past I have recovered just over 200 roman bronze coins mainly ranging from middle of the 2nd century and almost up to 3rd century. ( some silver plated )

We had a field archaeologist there to record and to check for any remaining but by the looks of it , it was a vessel or bag of some kind and been destroyed with the ploughing over the years.

Very happy with the result and so chuffed with my """" GARRETT EURO ACE """"

P.S the coins are off with my flo and to the museum lol

Sorry I forgot to mention : My euro ace was on Zero mode with the first three notches taken off for discrim for iron ..... and the coins come up the scale on about notch ten out of the twelve giving it a lovely typical bing a ling noise ..... ( well you no that typical coin sound lol

Yes thought it would be better seeing it in the field rather than some mug shot in a museum or on a desk lol .
so before I got them taken away I made sure I got a couple of shots ..
