Welcome to the first official DetectingScotland.com competition!

The rules are really simple. To enter all you have to do is either have made over 5 posts since DetectingScotland.com was formed OR to have made 5 (sensible please) posts before midnight on Saturday 27th March 2010. Judges decision (me!) is final. In the case of two members guessing the same amount, the first number stands.

To enter, simply estimate how many silver coins I have found in the past three years of detecting in South Wales. Theres a photo below of them to help you out.

The winner is the closest person to the correct answer and will win a set of brand new Chef brand headphones kindly donated by DetectingScotland member Chef (Geoff). Chef also manufactures and sells these headphones and I know lots of the guys who have them on Detectingwales.com speak really highly of them. Chef's headphones also come with a lifetime guarantee and a discount for senior DetectingScotland members.

I'll give you a clue its more than 5 coins but less than 300 coins.
Neil

There comes a time in every rightly constructed boys life when he has a raging urge to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.
