Nice start of a new season

I wish everything else went so swell in the rest of my life


So I’m set up quite well now, since the 2 Deuses with HF coil and WS5 aren’t sold yet. Plus I have my own set wth 28cm coil that I gathered form parts before (after I sold my old Deus cos of Deus II that I sold also :p). I can pick whatever I want, lol. THe grain has been harvested in some spots, mostly are still filled. But the stubble is horrible because it hasn’t rained a lot and the soil is almost hard as concrete. Luckily there are a few big fields where the stubble has been turned around which are very airy to detect in. Very dusty and hot nowadays, thank god for the colder Northern wind. I did 2x 1 hr yesterday on the Chapel field where I found a small Roman grot in half an hour with the 28cm coil. Last seasons I went there and found absolutely nothing.

Then I drove around for a long while to see what’s happening. Decided to stop near a big field that was fluffy, next to a ‘good field’ that hasn’t given a lot lately. Didn’t like my few attempts on that field because a lot of trash came out, but now I had thought that another Roman brooch would be nice, and within half an hour I got a nice one out ! this was with the HF coil on 27khz and 3 reactivity. I have no idea what to do with settings but I guess it’s not bad. Got some part of Roman braceleet maybe but it’s just a shape. THis morning I did another 1.5hr and found this nice button and some guilded copper ending of something. One of the nicest buttons I’ve ever found ! Usually there’s nothing on them..

It’s becoming Summerly hot and scorching on the field I guess.. THe cool wind was abolutely necessary. Still I couldn’t stay so long.. My stamina isn’t there. I remembered the times I had a search mate and we would go 2times for about 5 hr in a day.. PFF. Ok you do keep going for longer because you have company and then you could also find more, but a lot of the times I’m on a field where I don’t want to be. My last mate was usually ok with leaving quite quickly if we didn’t find much.

Silver of 2021

I’m already unhappy because next years can only be less gold finds lol.
I used to find a lot of silver but this year wasn’t too great. I did find a few top finds: the 1000-yr old King Otto is said to be very rare; The Denier is one I found 4 times before but always nice to find. Wish I’d find another type though :p
