My name is Steve and I live in the North West of England. I am a keen Metal Detectorist and Coin Collector.
I have been a Metal Detectorist and Coin Collector for about 30 years, ever since I was a youngster. It all started off when I used to go around to my Grandad's. He would go to the bank and buy bag loads of coins. He would then systematically go through them all, and take out any which were in lovely condition, or any rare ones. Also at the time there used to be a lot of silver coins in circulation. He would buy them and scrap them in bulk.
I would usually get his cast-offs. Some of them have proved to be extremely collectable. The Metal Detecting started slightly later, since the early 1980's and I have collected a lot of coins in this way too.
I hope to share some interesting stories and finds with you.
Thanks for reading.
