Metal Detector Treasure Finds, Pictures and Stories
The Find of a Life Time
I would like to share my story of "The Find Of A Life Time".
"The Brutus Eid Mar 42 B.C. coin".
I found the above mentioned coin with a Minelab CTX 3030 which I had borrowed from a friend we always catch up every 6 weeks to go metal detecting for the weekend, this particular weekend Matt was called back to Bristol early and allowed me to use his Minelab CTX 3030 as he knew I was thinking of purchasing one.
I went to one of my normal metal detecting sites which I have been visiting for the past 4 years with my own E-TRAC, but this time I went armed with the Minelab CTX 3030, after several hours of using the Minelab CTX 3030 a few silver coins had come up and a few other coins were found.
On investigating the Roman Coin in more detail I went to Spinks of London where it was "CONFIRMED"!!! that it was a "Brutus Eid Mar 42 B.C. Coin. Which I have now registered with the "British Museum of London.
