I was on a business trip all week to an old area where the Celts were, many of the small medieval towns date to the 800s around here.  Received permission to detect a nice flat field at a farm not far from the hotel.  Told the farmer I would be detecting at night with a headlamp as I didn?t get off work until 05:00/1700, he laughed and gave weird look.  Only got out for one night hunt on the field for about an hour.  Here?s the finds, a poor condition 1875, a WWII zinc 5 Pfenning coin and a clay marble.  Was surprised I spotted the marble at night but it was plain as day under my light and we have had a lot of rain.  Also bought a used Minelab X-Terra 70 with 3 coils, should have it in about 10 days.  HH, Mike

Thanks for the nice comments!  I bought the detector from a forum friend in the USA.  Think the marble dates circa early to mid 1800s but could be earlier.  Getting out this time of year is something special, looks like I will be doing a rain hunt today.  HH, Mike
