    You are so lucky you can metal detect for ANCIENTS! Only if we could in the states.


    Thanks,

    hi jacob..from time to time l also find medieval coins, coins from 16th, 17th century..l like small silver medieval coins, mostly from hungary, germany and austria..and turkish coins..if its small value, l gave to my friends..even roman coins, sometimes, l give away..

    I'm very envious of your ability to find coins! I would love to go metal detecting in Europe but would be worried about all of the cultural property issues in the US these days. Finding an ancient coin, regardless of value, would be a truly incredible experience.
