If you find a gold treasure on someone's land and take it to a museum for a valuation they will have to report it to the treasury. in turn the treasury will want to find out where it was found. This will lead to your first problem, trespassing, and theft. the item will belong to the land owner...and it's his right to claim the reward if classed as treasure trove...you will get zilch !! So if you have found gold on someone's land, re-bury it, then go to the land owner and ask for permission to detect on his land. then after a day or so, find the item again, and report it to the land owner. then go to the treasury and get it valued. if it's treasure trove you are forced to sell it to the nations museum and they will pay the value to you. you cannot keep it, but then as its value has to be shared between the land owner and the finder, that would cost a fortune to buy out the other partie to be able to keep the item if it was not classed as treasure trouve. so you will have to sell it anyway..so you might just as well inform the treasury and do it properly. when getting a "permission" from a land owner, do it right and get a signed paper that says you will remove any rubbish, return any tractor fittings found and share fifty fifty and valued items. Say you find a rolex watch..have it valued, say 2000 quid then either of you can buy out the other and keep the item legally or sell it and split the cash..and with a contract you will have the land owners adresse, contact tel numbers and email at hand if you need to extend the period or renew the permission...happy hunting.

First off, in England you have to split treasure with landowner 50/50, that’s probably more like a Brinze axe head from the Bronze Age, and there are loads of those axes found, there are WAY better finds out there than these! Yes the Staf hoard is best on here only with nugget,, you’d think if your going take the time to make a video of this type you’d ask an expert or do a little more research! But then again, 90% of all videos on here are junk thrown together by teenagers so..

One time when my friends and I were looking with our detectors in a park in Phx. in the bad part of town a woman started SCREAMING my baby, my baby someone help me he chocking. The woman was holding the baby by now but we went running over to her. My friend who was a paramedic layed down his expensive  Whites gold finder and went running over to her.  Just as we got to the woman she said I got it, he had a piece of hard candy that he got ahold of and was chocking on it. With everything ok we went back to looking for more coins, Or I guess I can say I did as he no longer had his detector.  In all this mess someone grabbed his.  We all positive that the woman was part of the plan. The cops said the same thing. Never fall for what we did.

Hmmm so much for research. The two biggest nuggets in the world were found 50 kilometres from where I am sitting now in Victoria Australia. One was found with a metal detector- 'the hand of faith' which was sold to the Golden Nugget casino in Vegas and the biggest ever found was the 'Welcome Stranger' found in the 1800's a few kilometers east of the other find. It weighed in at 3,123 oz. The biggest nuggets in the world have all been found in Australia. Big nuggets still turn up every year.

In UK all finds are the property of the landowner usually shared 50/50 with finder but depends upon individual arrangements. So the Hyatt's almost certainly were only entitled to 1/2 of the find at most! Doing some research before posting this video would have been a good idea

All of these fines are the exception to rule and what I tell them that are looking at starting to metal detecting. I been metal detecting for well over 30 years and fines like this do happen but very rarely. A normal day out for me will net maybe enough for a soda on when home or if I'm real lucky a cheap hamburger but more then not I will go in the hole after paying for gas and batteries. Don't get your hopes up and just enjoy the hobby and if you do fine something great then that's icing on cake.

My amazing country am sure has many many more wonderful and outstanding finds to be had. If you have permission to dig on land anything of interest to the museum and any rare finds most be handed over to that area finds coordinator, they will log the find or finds and then they will go to the museum to be appraised. They tell you what it is and how much it would be worth? If the Museum has nothing like it inn the collection then they will offer the finds a fee, or if it goes to auction then they do have to split the money with the land owner. The Museum only have so much money to buy the finds and sometimes they hope that the finder will let them have it on loan in the museum. Very sad if part of our history goes into auction and is never seen again 😞
Zigi (1 year ago)
You could not be more wrong if you tried (1)Anything over 300yrs old and at least a minimum 10%Gold or Silver is classed as treasure trove. (2)Finds can be handed to a finds liaison officer,or museum or even the Police. (3)An inquest is then led by the CORONER who determines whether the find constitutes treasure or not. (4)Finds are NOT appraised by a museum.They are appraised by an independent board of antiquities experts known as the Treasure Valuation Committee. (5)Non-treasure finds are the remit of the Portable Antiquities Scheme. Also of interest...The hoard was purchased jointly by the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery for £3.285 million Pounds.You can view the hoard at the above mentioned building. And sadly the owner of the land and the finder of the treasure are no longer friends.They fell out because the detectorist found even more treasure from the same spot in the following years,and the farmer wanted it all for himself.Treasure like Religion makes good people into fucking idiots.
