Great find there Colin mate, that Groat is in excellent condition with a really strong portrait. I have never saw one in this condition before and Ive been collection coins for over forty years, so well done . I remember I was at the DS  Culross DIG a few years ago and a thistle Merk came up in the field in front of the old Kirk, it would be really good if your coin was recovered from the same field this year again? ;) ;)
When detecting always expect the unexpected, if in doubt, prepare to be disappointed, then dig it.If you don't know what a coin is chances are it's not that common and could be worth more than you think.Minelab X-Terra 70,Explorer XS.CSCOPE Newforce R1 ,X-Terra 30,Tesoro Hawkeye.Ace250,TrackerIV,GM4

That's a marvellous find, Colin.

How far down was the coin and was it a strong signal from the get-go?

Cheers,

Tim
