Five year gap between gold Staters

Post by Jungle » Sun Aug 12, 2018 10:20 pm

Strange first day on bashed down osr stubble, 20+ roman, 11" coil died so 45 minute round trip to swap coils, weather much better than forecast (no Lighting). Decided to break from survey lines on way back to car. Used gps to walk between two find spots and a Chute on the surface.

Great start to season.

Might have to promote 13" coil as it did the business on the Roman.

It's not a great example. I was a lucky when I started and found two in two years so I was beginning to think that was it.

That's a beauty Jungle may you find many more, I like looking at photos of them as I have yet to find one to look at :(

29 years and still not got one. A few years ago a chap came up to me at work and says "you go metal detecting Ray, what's this" he had a gorgeous stater in his hand and my jaw hit the floor. He had only just started detecting about 4 weeks previously and found it in a field about 1 mile from my home.
