Brilliant... Well handled Grant - top detectives to those involved.


His rep is now down the pan.  Hes only shot himself in the foot. His loss.

It really is pathetic that somebody would do that kind of thing. To hear him 'Woohoo!' and the likes on the video knowing that it was all a deception is quite frankly cringeworthy!

I know the find was commented upon at another non DS dig and to be fair nothing negative was directed at DS, however the individual's credibility (and parenthood) was questioned.
The 'investigation' and subsequent actions by DS Admin and other honest detectorists was well handled and a good advert for responsible detecting in Scotland.

Sad when somebody tries it on but a great result in finding him out !! Well done Grant  ;D ;D ;D ;D I have purchased coins from dealers and Ebay myself (I collect coins) but would never even dream of claiming these as 'finds' !!

That's a couple times sneaks have been caught out..... Just not worth it as the Scottish detecting forums' members are like blood hounds n won't have the wool pulled over their eyes.
