Wow what eye candy! The front of the $20 gold reminds me of a bullion round from the Zombucks series. Congrats!

You sir are truly blessed. I can barely imagine finding my first gold coin, let alone a double eagle. Adding to that youíve found several others (one dating back to 150BC)?! I wish I could have seen through your eyes the unearthing of each one. Simply phenomenal. Congratulations!!!!!

The celtics all came East of London. The pair of 150 BC galo Belgic quarters came on a lovely day w a friend that also found an ancient gold fragment. All those good memories make even an uneventful day in the fields enjoyable.

No I just go to visit a couple times a year. Been extremely lucky to have good clubs with great land to detect on. I really went to England to find gold as thought would never find it at home in the states. That was just more dumb luck! You can't beat luck.

Banner! Oh, wait....dammit!
Youíd be cartiní my carcass outta that place in an ambulance if I found that thing! Like has been said, that is THE holy grail coin of anyone who hunts, because it would be THAT unlikely to find one, along with the numismatic value and the weight value. Somebody way back when was down ALOT of money when they lost that thing! Iíd be checking,re-checking and checking again to make sure you donít have a plow scatter going on in there...
Fantastic find, thatís a hard one to beat!
