I am pleased to say that after reading my blog, Garrett has supplied the farmer with a complementary Pro-Pointer. Full marks to them.

What is a ‘Siege Token’?
It is unlikely that any of you have ever come across one in America - unless you've been digging across the pond, of course.

The Hawking Ring

Hawking rings or ‘vervels’ are rare detectorist finds. They were once attached to the leg of a bird of prey as a mark of ownership … a modern analogy would be a pigeon ring that bears details relating to the owner. Read more by clicking on the link:

US Tags are often found in the UK by detectorists who sometimes try to reunite them with the original owner ...

Signing in for Google Street View? Don't Bank on it!

Like your Sat-Nav, Google Street View cannot always be relied upon but the detectorist can sometimes use it to advantage.

King of Pennies

Would you pay more than £100,000 for an old penny marked with a tiny dot?
Perhaps (especially) any Canadians reading this should go and examine those old coins you may have …

Picture This!
I always take a camera with me when I go detecting just in case I find that Gold Angel, and then I’ll be able to take one of those ‘clod-cam’ shots that are so popular.

Metal Detecting Down the Pan

UK Detectorists find so many personal items like buckles, buttons and clothes fasteners in fields because in past times they were literally spread on the land along with human waste. There wasn’t a sewerage system or refuse collection as we know it today. So, how did that happen …?
