I’ve just had a peep at a rival metal detecting site, the big names on here are being missed by other members On their and questions are being asked but they keep locking the topic Instead of responding in a adult manner.
I hope the big names keep up the good work here and I hope to be able to contribute with a few finds in the new year when I’ve got my new hip.

Oooooh, when you have your new hip fitted invite us all around and we can use you as a test bed for our machines.... :lol:

Good luck with the new hip, you'll soon be racing around the fields again :thumbsup:

If you get bored you can always show us your older finds....makes for good reading and maybe we can learn something new :ugeek:

I’ll dig a few out and post pictures if I can work out how to do it.

In the mean time I’ll tell you a tail. One of my best finds was a Georgian Intaglio, I say best because I found it with my Deus at about 10” deep and the metal bit was so small and fine I’m amazed I even got a signal. The following weekend I was going detecting with Neil (The Mole, I’m sure some of you will remember him from the other forum) while I was making a brew Neil asked to see the Intaglio so my son brought it into the kitchen for him, he picked it up and told me what a jammy sod I was, then he went quiet until he uttered the words I’m really sorry, he’d dropped it on the tiled floor and it was in 4 big bits and lots of splinters. Not the best start to a days detecting I’ve ever had!
