Went out to Rich Quarter’s field cos I know them and found 1 denier there a few weeks ago. It’s the second on that field. THen today I got out before it was 30 degrees and found an amazing cool silver that i hadn’t found before 😀 1220-1250 minted in Lille. So small that I was seriously doubting that there was anything left in the small ball of dirt that I was waving over my coil lol. But there it was: a shiny edge of silver and black with some marks and I knew what it was 😀 So the Deus II works with me finally.
FEw days ago I also find a big dude which resembled the saints pepople put in their purse but it’s 5.5cm. Noone could tel me what it was and I can’t clean it too well.
This Summer, there was no detecting because hard dry soil and most fields were occupied. As soon as the grain was harvested from my bestest field, I went there but the high stubble prevented me from living my best life with my Deus II. Went back after the stubble was ploughed, again to find near nothing. Sigh. Third time: I went with my female buddy and it rained for one and a half hour whilst we were on the field. I was SO FED up and she also didn’t want to bring me home, so there went most of my motivation to detect ever again with her and/or in the rain :p I just like being independent, esp when I’m on a field that’s not giving. OR when the rain has reached my underwear.
All of September was pretty bad weather and it rained a lot, which makes the soil a bit better. Might be the case that we’ll be having dry and rain seasons i Western-Europe, as it seems to go like this in the last 4 yrs. Most fields have been planted again because this is how the goverment wants it .. the plants take out nitrogen or whatever from the soil. My best fields are unavaible again.
One field on the corner gave me the occasional good find. Keep finding the same square button with some scratched flower. This coin (photo) and maybe a piece of brooch of a rare time period to find stuff from. THe coin is in very good shape considering its age.. Most coins of 150 yrs old are rotten. This one is 400 yrs old ^^
The sword pommel is from the field that’s closest to my house. That field is said to be Roman but I never found anything old on it, or even worth mentioning. This pommel is the first good find actually.
I’m using some Sony headphones with cable now and I ordered a used WSA big headcups so at least the cable will be gone. Never used the big headphones of XP but since I had the WS5 of the old XP Deus, I kinda got the hint that it might actually enhance the hearing. Using program 2 Sens with slight mods.. Because I modified my first deus II too much, I guess, and now I’m careful. THe fulltones and low disc gives the iron sound, and with the 3tones I will be digging more iron than anything else. So back to the high pitched fulltones again.. I hope to put my ws6 puck on the shaft so I can watch the ID again, just like the old times :p Just like to know what might be popping up before hand. Don’t know why..
