Metal Detector Finds - 18K Victorian Brooch - UK

It all started on a wet Sunday morning in West Wales, the car was loaded as my detecting partner and myself made the 90 mile trip to attend a charity rally run by the Gwent Metal Detecting Club, this was just my third trip out following a bad leg injury it was also only the second time out with my new Minelab X-TERRA 705.

The drive was to last nearly 2 hours, when we arrived at the site and all the welcome backs and good to see you bits were done it was time to get down to the serious part of the day searching. Both my partner and myself opted to search a field that was still in stubble this was to prove a really good choice as with only my fourth reading of the day I unearthed a stunning little 18ct gold brooch from the late victorian era with 2 rubies and 1 opal set into the centre. This was a fantastic way to start my detecting off using the X-TERRA 705.
