Coin found by Brian Cavill

On an outing in June with my T2 I found a few poor quality late Roman coins BUT a nice sword chape in bronze. It is 5cm wide with a lovely patina. Then, by site only, I discovered a bone gaming counter on the surface of the plowed field, my best find on the day, plus a decent Crispus coin (A.D.317/326) with the Altar reverse minted in London.

Beau Ouimette with T2 and multiple finds

Rare coin found by Andy Muller

These are all T2 (Terminator) finds. Some of my choice finds. I have several thousand people that read my reviews on a few websites and forums and I get many emails asking advice on finding the good silver/gold finds in contaminated ground. I did not plan this but we help where we can. The John Penny is a significant find, so is the Belgae Celtic unit and the Edward VI Harp mintmark hammered.

CS Button found by John with T2

CS Button

This was my first CS button I found when I got my new T2. I can take a group shot of several CS buttons and plate found with this machine. Thought the MS R button would be a good one as not many are found. Found three (SC,NC and Blk I) right after I bought the small coil and hit some pounded iron in some written off house sites.
