I have been shouting the praises of the XP Deus for the last 7 years.

Watch Gary clean up the coins that were left behind.

Be interesting to know which of his programmes he used.

Happy Hunting.

Brilliant video. My turn next then! ::g Mind you probably not when I think of all those signals three feet or more down that I have given up on in the past as just more agricultural junk. :(

Just an observation but I suspect that the chaps had simply cleared out the site to the limits of their detectors. When they brought in a Deus in expert hands they punched several more inches and another layer of coins came up. There are probably still loads more down there waiting for an even deeper machine or for the turn of the plough. If the field is reasonably clear of iron I would have been tempted to try a larger coil straight afterwards. That would have been a good indicator of whether there are indeed many more at depth.

We had 11 coins in total, Reg and Richard are great guys.
If anyone gets the chance to go to Jersey it's worth seeing the hoard before it is dis- assembled.
There are also lots of other hoards on display in the Hougue Bie museum.

Brilliant video and great to see a museum involving them so fully in the dismantling. That, from all accounts, is not always the case. Must have been hard to sit on that knowledge for 3 weeks, especially as the story had got out.
Hope my new Deus can find me just one decent coin, certainly looks impressive in this video.Maiden trip out tomorrow =D>

The Deus is the Machine that did the mopping up that others involved failed to find.

Remember that most finds come from the top 12 inches.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.

Lol. Given the limits of most machines that is about the same as saying most people have two legs.
Point is that while most finds may well come from top twelve inches that doesn't mean that most things waiting to be found do.

Lets suppose that you dig a field without knowing that a hoard had been found ... you would probably ignore many of the cra*py signals.
Now lets suppose that you dig a field that know has been done to death after a hoard had been found ... you would probably dig every scratchy signal.
My point being that knowing a hoard has been previously found ... alters what you are prepared to dig.
Imagine there is no heaven, only sky above us.

The way some folks swing they are missing many finds whatever their depth.

Another excellent factor with the Deus is its ultra fast recovery speed giving the user the edge.

Happy Hunting,

Jerry.

Correct!

I also think that we all miss stuff and even if I went over that field with my Racer I would find a good few of those hoard coins. I helped a chap out early last year who had "done every inch" with his CTX....I picked up one he had missed and if I go back I reckon I would get a few more.

My feeling is if he came to some of my permissions it would be similar but the other way round.
