It’s always nice to encounter a little beginners’ luck when you’re trying out a new hobby. But if the phenomenon strikes on your debut treasure hunt, it can mean a significant pay-day. Wesley Carrington was just 20 minutes into his first metal detecting trip when he unearthed a hoard of Roman gold coins estimated to be worth £100,000. Yesterday he jokingly suggested he may have ‘peaked early’ in his treasure hunting career. The novice revealed he had bought a basic detector from a local shop and headed straight out to woods to try his new gadget.
Mr Carrington used Garret Ace 250 metal detector. Whole range of Garrett metal detectors is available in Regton Metal Detector Shop.
