Henry VII angel


February 22, 2015 08:00am

Went out Sunday 15th February, I had been detecting a couple hours when I got a great signal, 12-38 on my E-TRAC display.
I dug a plug of approximately 4" and flipped it over.
I swept the E-TRAC over the plug and signal was still in the hole.
As I placed my spade in to the soil I noticed what appeared to be a flattened bottle top.
On closer inspection I realised it wasn't a bottle top but was infant a gold coin. (To be exact it was a Henry VII gold ang!)
I couldn't believe my eyes. 4 years detecting and I find a gold hammered!

Just started my CTX3030 starts singing a sweet song: 18K & 18 grams! And a little further the chorus of the song even more acute: a silver coin, 1 Franc 1886 Leopold II Koning.

I think I have not finished to spend my free time on the waterfront of this canal!

while my brother was inside getting ready i stood on my front lawn wondering what was under the ground, so i picked up my 305 and ground balanced it and set the sensitivity to seven and then off i went. my first signal was a 36-40, i got down dug the plug and started opening it... then i saw a silver rim, i ran over, grabbed my camera and started filming and it was a 1954 florin!!!
and then after that came a 1951 silver sixpence!!!
(i never ended up going to that park) THANK YOU MINELAB!!! :)

I got an iffy signal but decided I was going to dig it anyway as I recall a previous signal on a previous dig I had a similar signal and turned out to be a very nice hammered so I dug this signal usually I am filming but with it being iffy decided not too then I found my target and was stunned to see what a beautiful coin I had found didn't know what it was but I turned my camera on and filmed it a little, I decided to take a picture of it and post it on Facebook for identification it wasn't until members started commenting that i knew then I had found a really nice coin, Everyone was so happy for me and I just couldn't believe it, 7 silvers I had that day and every one of them made it so wiry while my hands being numb.

“I was finding gold right and left as if this location had never seen detector before.”

“I was having a ‘Eureka Moment’, the whole experience was mind blowing. The GPZ 7000 was working some serious electronic magic. I have not found that many large chunks of gold that fast in very many years–1.6 ounces of gold in less than three hours! The GPZ was able to detect fine specimen gold at depths far exceeding what one of the best hot VLF detectors could attain in this soil.”
