August 2018Finds of the month
Graham Gislam, who found a stunning piece of Bronze Age ring money on arable pea field, using his Deus with an 11″ coil, somewhere in the Great Yarmouth area. This is his secret magic formula…….!
Deus fast, slightly modified by reducing:
Discrimination to 1, Full tones
Sensitivity 90, TX power 2
Reactivity 3, Silencer -1
GB = Tracking
11 inch coil
He found it in the pouring rain! This guy is such an ardent detectorist, I believe he dreams he’s detecting when he’s asleep!
Despite the extreme heat with temperatures pushing 90F, best coin find of the month award goes to:
Mike Greatbatch, who found a lovely Henry 6th Groat with:
XP Deus, version 5 with the new x35 white 9″ coil using the ‘hot’ programme.
It was only about 3″ down, which was just as well as on our previous dig pick axes were necessary!
This beautiful coin was retrieved on a stubble field at Hoxne on our latest club rally.
