      Nice coin. I have never seen such a coin.

      I came accros this find(Oxforshire) on a field where Deus user already searched the area arround 25m2.
      At beggining I have had lots of iron nail signals(straight line to the left),dug up some to see what is what and they turned to be very old along with pieces of old ceramic. That lead me to pay attention and dig both ferrous and non ferous ones.I was using 20KHz coil with preset program 3 on my MFD, as explained here http://www.akaforums.com/threads/103/
      ( posibly slight change of setting,forgive me but dont remember exact status).
      (Whenever there is a non- ferous signal I just dig it up,doesnt matter if I already know by the hodograph that there is bullet,cap etc.(recently turned out a straight coin line to be a bit of old chunky rusted iron)).
      So I got a positive coin signal,changed direction and got iron on hodo.Did a small hole and a rusty nail poped out, did another scan and got results similar to initial ones.Ended up with 2 nails and the coin( I wasnt realy expecting it). Hole was deep anywhere between 22-25 cm.I assume the coin was somewhere at the bottom beneath nails.Got it picked up along second nail with pinpointer.
      to top it up got 5p coin less than 70cm of above find in shallow soil.Deus must have missed it somehow.
      p.s.Please note that I am still in a process of getting better with MFD( newbie with the hobby).

      Certainly is a dream coin to find SuchMuch.

      Please forgive me, but is the sceatt a forgery? Not modern, but from way back in the Saxon times. It looks as though it has been silver dipped? I don't know a lot about sceatt's, but I know the Celtic people were doing this silver and gold plating to staters.
