A LOCAL metal detecting enthusiast has got a real buzz out of his hobby after making an unusual find.
Devin Warmsley, a member of Spilsby Search Society, was taking part in a group event in December 2011 when he came across a silver gilt seal-matrix dating back to the fourteenth century.
The British Museum has already said it wants the Medieval find to join its collection and could be prepared to pay anywhere between £5,000 and £20,000 for it.
Mr Warmsley said: "I've always had a metal detector and done bits and bobs but I've never been in a club before until joining about a year ago.
"You never know what you are going to pull out of the ground. I've had a few Henry III coins and then went for about three months when I didn't find anything at all.
"Then on December 7, we were about to call it a day when I discovered a gold quarter and then this seal matrix.
