”The field we had was on top of the hill between the old house and an old monastery. I was out with my mate Matt Nurse and My dog Nelson, The first target of the day was an old pickle fork, The ground was sodden and I must have gained a few inches in height due to the amount of mud stuck to the soles of my boots, the rain was coming through My jacket and I was thinking about packing in but then I had a signal on my 400i reading in at 58 , I Dug the plug pushed the pointer about a bit then I saw it. I knew it was a gold coin of some sort just lying there in front of Me ! Before I touched it I shouted over to Matt and he came running over. By this point I couldn’t stop shaking. I eventually picked it up and realised I had Edward 111 quarter noble. I could not believe it and it took me about 10
mins to get my self together.”
”Then I jokingly I said to matt next hole will be silver. I walked up and over the hill and my next target was indeed Silver – A bracelet. I could not believe My luck.” 
”We had been out a fair hours now and the weather had got worse so we decided to head back to the car , I was swinging My way lazily back when the ACE pinged yet again !! I looked up at Matt and dug the hole …. BOOM it was a guilted ring !! I still cannot believe My luck and can’t wait to get back on those fields !!”
What a hunt !! A gold coin, A silver bracelet and a Ring in one day ! well done Joe !
