Great topic. I have been detecting about 3 1/2 years and have dug thousands of coins both old and new. But I am still to find a Gothic florin.

Had to backtrack through the logs to see that I found mine back in October of  2010.
I did provide some pics but it was so worn only a good photographer could reveal any detail and a good Photographer I am not. :-[

Gothic Florin found in the SE of SA late 2015 with a Teknetics G2, was sitting out the middle of a paddock edging onto a swamp.  Only other finds in the immediate area were a cricket buckle and Victorian shilling (all found with extensive gridding).

Note: sorry about the picture size, you will have to scroll across for the finer detail.

(As an experiment i added a larger picture of this coin.  Rwork )

Found around the remains an old miners cottage near Gundagai in October 2015.
Also straight out of the ground showing signs of fire damage perhaps.

You will have to work on yor picture sizes. Yours is 32 kb and we are allowed 2000 kb.
It would be nice to see your coin properly.

Gday WealthMan  we are almost neighbours . I'm on the other side of Wyalong . Nice find mate even if it was ten years ago . Very hard to find coins out here that aren't toasted badly . I found a KG penny yesterday ......1923 just readable . Be nice to find  gothics or sovs around here but not a lot of the local history has been preserved making it hard to find sites to search. Cheers Dave.
