You no doubt are already aware, but we have (bronze) Cartwheel pennies
here in the UK.
They are those attributed to King George III. I've only ever found one, and
even then it was badly corroded.

Anarchyologist.... a utopian society of individuals who enjoy complete freedom without government control and possess limitless powers to declare vast tracts of worthless land as "archeology sensitive areas" without any laudable reason.

Just found this old thread today. The terms I've long wanted to know the meaning of don't pertain to detecting itself but are used by forum members, such as: occasion 14, thumbs right etc. I think I figured out that tongue=tongue in cheek(sarcasm),headband=someone done something foolish, roll=eye roll as in "Oh man what a dope!"
Anyway the first 2 and a couple more have stymied me for months.Help please.
