What Will You Find?

2000 Year Old Coin

I was part of a tour group that was hunting certain properties in the U.K.. This was my second trip as I usually go for two weeks at a time. Our tour guide Chris has been to Kellyco Metal Detector SuperStore a couple times on his vacations from the U.K. to the U.S.

It was the second week of the tour that we came to this selected hunting field. There are several fields to hunt and Chris leaves the decision where to hunt every day to the fellows in the group, so thats what we did. As several of us arrived to the chosen location I began my particular search pattern. About two hours into the morning hunt I got a nice signal and unearthed this 50 B.C. Celtic Stater. As of now, the 2000 year old coin is currently at the British Museum undergoing further study for it is a rare, one-of-a-kind coin.M
