I have started detecting once more following my retirement. I use both an xp Deus and an equinox 600. I have found a couple of gold coins (half sovereign and a third guinea). Also I found a scattered hoard of 20 roman siliqua which are currently in the treasure process.

Welcome Len, excited for your hoard find. Never had a coin hoard myself but love hearing about others good fortune :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Howdy Doody Len nice to have you aboard. :thumbsup: Interesting that you have a foot in both camps detector-wise. Do you have a different machine of choice for different land/conditions?
Well done with the hoard! Majestic. Only hoard of Roman I have found was solely 2nd century bronzes. Still fun to dig of course but yours is several levels on from that.

Hi Len and welcome.
Like the photo of the Romans because if there`s one thing I like it is Roman Silver, regardless of who dug it up.
Seems to be a lot better quality and lasting, than the hammereds, also I like the various pictorial designs, better than all those pellet things.
Enjoy your time here. :thumbsup:
Dave.

Both detectors are good . I like using the equinox but the deus is lighter and better.balanced when using on some of the land l walk across.

Hi Len, welcome. Fantastic hoard. I had a spread civil war one with only eleven coins. They were all very rough but all the time I think I've missed some. The last to come out I found was a Charles halfcrown digging into the side of a small bank about 15 to 18 inches deep located with a very quiet pinpoint signal using the explorer II. We dug further in to the bank as much as we could by hand but no luck. I keep dreaming of a JCB and a big pot lol.
