In all my life detecting I have never found a florin let alon one as nice as that. That is a fantastic find. You just do not see many of them about at all these days ,not even in the magazines like searcher or Treasure hunter that I get religeously every month. Well done to you mate.
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
