A UK Based Detecting Glossary
« on: May 18, 2018, 09:07 »

 
What follows are some of the terms often used by detectorists and accompanied by a brief definition. Be aware that the compilation of such a glossary is very subjective and not definitive. It may be viewed as ‘a work in progress’ …

John what coins make up the trifecta? Is it 3 different coins or three different types of the same denomination coin?

A big part of detecting is being in the right place - in your head and at the site.

I've just finished a story in which a guy found Gold, Silver and bronze on the same day. He called it 'my Trifecta Day.'

Trifecta – When three coins of different types are found during a detecting session.

Is there such a thing as lesser trifecta, checked my detecting diary's and I have managed a trifecta of Bronze, Silver and Aluminium on three separate occasions, a triple trifecta perhaps.
