Went out on a club dig with the deus this morning, stubble field we have visited a few times before.

First find of note was this broken roman, thought it was silver washed at first but looking closer there is silver showing where it's broken. I know very little about roman coins so if anyone can help me with that one it would be appreciated.

Next find of note is the one that nearly gave me a heart attack when I broke open the clod and it dropped out.
I have tentatively ID'd it as a British Remic type quarter stater, spinks number 48, so if anyone can confirm or correct that would be appreciated. Came up as a scratchy 40, but then everything has been a bit scratchy today, the stubble was a bit long and not rotted and it was tough to keep the coil low, so I had my my sensitivity cranked to 99 to compensate.

All in all, I'm glad I got out of bed and went out this morning, I'm in rather a good mood now. :)

Well found.
As already said, would have been happy with just the Roman.
As for the Stater, find of a lifetime.
Never mind getting out of bed, you wont be able to sleep tonight.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Thanks Allectus.

Does this one appear in spinks do you know? I'd like to get an idea of the value so I can give the landowner his cut.

I wonder what the Celtic swear word used was on finding you’ve lost your gold stater?!

I would imagine it was fairly similar to the one that slipped out when I found it! ;)
