Saaaaweeeeet!! Good job man! You must be ecstatic with that find! It's so hard to wrap your mind around the age isn't it. How different things were then, what the person looked like who dropped it, what they had to go through to even get it in the first place, the history that walked over it for 2000 years!! So cool! Congratulations! !

Yes it was a great feeling when I seen it come out of the ground. I just knew it was great as I have never found anything like it. There are lots of different designs from this emperor but this design there is only one other coin so far like it.
I wish I could have stayed longer as it was so much fun. So I will have to wait till next year before I get to do it again. I cannot wait

One fabulous coin and one very memorable trip! I have to be honest and say that I really envy those fellas detecting across the pond. They have so much history underneath their feet. Great find and thank you for sharing Steve!

I'd also say that's a banner for sure!

WOw !!!!!  Knowing you get to go back has got to have you counting down the days , what a great find . 
   Does having found something that old ruin you for finding our relatively new coins over here?
   I don't know if I get a vote , but I think it belongs in the banner.
   Thanks for sharing it with us.

Ha, that's a very valid question! I can only speak for myself, so, no, I don't think it would ruin finding anything newer, but I would constantly be chasing something that old again...even if only in my dreams, lol.

Steve, we here in the US of A cannot even comprehend a find that old. That my friend, is surely a 'Holy Grail' type of find for a detectorist. STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!

Banner all the way Yes

Well when I got back I drove to Virginia. too look for civil war stuff. The whole time I was wishing I stayed the extra week. But now I am back home and we just got 5 inches of snow so when that's gone it will be back to reality and find the silver again.
This trip was with a club I belong to in England its the Colchester treasure hunting club http://www.colchestertreasurehunting.co.uk/home.htm here is a link if you want to look at some more of there finds. The week I was there we had about 40 other detectorist from USA and Canada
