What Will You Find?

Edward III Gold Half Noble

Took my Minelab Safari out on a club dig near Thatcham, Berkshire, UK. Went over a bit of land that looked like it had been well dug by other detectorists. Got a cracking signal and out popped this beauty.

A gold Half Noble of Edward III. Minelab does it again!!! First a deeply buried hoard of Roman pewter tableware back in 2009 and now a piece of gold that everyone else missed. Thanks Minelab!
