44 years old Nick Reynolds was at a metal detective’s organised dig when he got a perfect signal, he dug down into the soft ploughed soil to see a Gold coin looking back at him.
The coin was instantly recorded with the on-site FLO (Finds Liaison Officer) and identified as an Edward III Half Noble.
When I interviewed Nick just after he found the coin he told me how he started detecting in 1994, but after a shoulder operation he needed a lighter machine so he chose an XP Gold Maxx Power and some years later he upgraded to the Deus.
Nick went on to say, since using the Deus with the 9” coil his finds rate is constantly very high…. especially using the “HOT” program.
Some of his best finds have come from investigating suspicious signals.
