My best XP Deus Gold finds

I have had some fantastic gold finds and both were within months of me starting detecting.
I found them with my #XPDeus, I use the full set up remote and WS4 headset along with the 11″ black coil, Within a few months of buying it I bagged 2 stunning gold finds within weeks of each other and in different areas of Dorset, UK.

Keith Gold Rams broochThe first great find was a solid gold “Rams Head” brooch which was found while metal detecting on pasture.
I declared it as a potential treasure find and off it went to The British Museum who had it for over a year. It was eventually returned with a date being attributed to early 1800’s (but some thought it was much older). I recall the ground was rock hard and very flinty so excavating it safely was hard going.

Keith Gold find with his XP Deus metal detector

I got a fairly faint but nice high tone using the HOT programme and it was was one of those that I knew I had to dig it.
It was a hands and knees job with the trowel as I had no chance of even breaking the surface of  ground with the spade though.
The brooch was damaged but was still mind blowing stunning and the craftsmanship incredible.
I ended up keeping the brooch and giving the landowner 50% of the value.

Gold staters found with an xp Deus metal detector

The other gold find was a treasure find of a scattered hoard of 6 Celtic gold staters dating 50 to 85 BC. This was on boggy pasture and I just caught a faint signal on the end of a back swing.
Again I was using the HOT programme and eventually found them widely scattered across the field.
Many thanks Keith
