Congratulations - its what we all dream of one day !
I think that if I were you I would be tempted to contact Garrett in the states and offer them a copy of your photo with the hoard - Great publicity for them and who knows you might get a complimentary pointer or something even better - tell them you might have done even better if you had an AT PRO !!!!!!! and wait for the postman.
Well done mate

Brilliant mate, like a lot on here, I am envious. We all look for the day when we can find a hoard. For me something older than 1695 would be good. That's the oldest I have found so far :)

Cheers mate, and well done

Funny as ! your the first person that has spotted that !! lol

The reasoning behind it was as it was a scattered hoard I was leaving the holes visible so I could see where the concentration of the coins was ....

10 / 10 as you are the only one that picked it up ::g ::g ::g ::g :D :D

Hi Sandtrooper ! ::g

The Euro Ace is a magic little machine and i found some great finds with it especially hammereds !!

My settings which i had it on when i found the hoard was ... : zero mode , 3 notches off iron discrimination , full sensitivity , and if i remember correctly they showed up on the scale of about 9 or 10 out of the twelve.

as far as depth goes as there were so many they varied mainly about 3/4 foot and some were deeper that were stuck together. ( note the deeper ones on there own gave a signal but loosing its clearness )

good luck with your hunting ! a blinding bit of kit ..... tried and tested to the max ..
