What Will You Find?

Ancient Coins from 30-15 BC

Unbelievable is the only way to describe my recent treasure hunting adventure in the UK with my GTI 2500. It wasn’t long after starting our search that I found a full Celtic Gold Stater of Addedemaras, Celtic Chief in approximately 30-15 BC. Fate was again kind to me and I retrieved another from only about 4-5 inches down, the GTI 2500 locked on perfectly! I held a slightly different Stater in my hand, which turned out to be a rare off center strike showing part of the legend that is usually not visible. Four of us returned a few days later and two more were found in the vicinity. Mike, also a 2500 user, found Celtic gold coins and was excited as you can imagine. I dug 54 coins in the week and quite a few nice artifacts. My GTI 2500 worked great in the real world of UK hard detecting.”
