7 Romain Coins in 4 Hours

Today on 20/5/2014 I was with my metal detector CTX 3030 looking for coins. In addition I have visited a place where formerly a Roman military camp and a Roman village is standing.

After 4 hours of searching I have 7 Roman coins have been found, including a coin of the Emperor Constantine ...

Unfortunately, I have also found some of trash and other iron parts, but I have my CTX 3030 only been two weeks and I need some practice in distinguishing the sounds.

I used to have an X-Terra 705 and was already looking with this detector at this point, even some Roman coins have been found, but wanted to see if I still have a chance with the CTX 3030 ... and I have had success!

7 beautiful Roman coins ... now I have to clean the coins just yet and next time I go with my 17 "coil on the search!
