A Farm Boy’s Lost Treasure

CTX 3030

April 16, 2018 10:42am

IMG_5471.JPG

I arrived at his house Saturday morning, March 24, 2018, at 8:00 a.m. ready to look for his uncle’s silver quarter and then move on to the old home sites on the property. Since I was looking for a silver quarter I was running my CTX 3030 in Combined and Ferrous Coin, Recovery Deep, Response Normal, no Discrimination and pinpoint Sizing and had bin 3 (42-48) at 1050 Hz(my favourite silver tone) and the other bins and the Ferrous bin (20-35) all running at 75 Hz. The house and the barn were about 100 yards apart.

Celtic bronze stamp

CTX 3030

In a survey before the construction of the road was good for me one nice find.
I have nothing similar to compare.
I think it's a very old Celtic bronze stamp for decorating ceramics.
The body is bronze, the center of iron, the whole artefact is 30% fused with fire.

Hunted out beaches

Excalibur Series

This is not just a story but a bit of hope to all those detectorists that see so many guys “cleaning out “the beaches day in and day out.
I see them every day on my way to work and on my way home, those spots that I so meticulously looked for. The ones that gave me so many good old gold rings, hammered to death.
