Did a hole in your own backyard and tell them you found it there.

a number of leaf-shaped solid gold brooches
Not lightly do the leaves of Lorien fall.
A prepper 1,500 years ago hid his gold in the ground. What goes ‘round...
It’s not illegal to search with a metal detector, but it’s against the law to find something with it.
I understand now.

In Rhineland-Palatinate searching with a metal detector is a minor offence
No picking up lost change I guess.

WOW! I’d have to think long and hard before I turned that in!

Not telling authorities about the find can lead to a fraud prosecution, while selling it on can end in a charge for dealing in stolen goods.
Stolen from whom?
Oh, I see: The treasure hunter initially kept his discovery secret and is thought to have sold off part of it on the black market, but it was seized by the authorities when it came to their attention.. Everything belongs to the "authorities" even if they had nothing to do with finding it (or inventing it, or building it, or operating it...)

In their mind its better that they remain buried forever, and are probably never discovered. Petty jealousy is all it is.

(I was standing with a rifle, waiting for soviet paratroopers, but communists just ran for office.)
Those would have ALL been sewn as decorations on clothing, for me a formal dress. They are uniform enough to look factory manufactured and would not be that detectable.
My dad is sure he is going to find something like this one day with his metal detecting. He is really big into treasure hunting and unearthing hidden historical artifacts.
I swear that every time you talk to him he brings up metal detecting in some way or another. He even recently created a website with a best metal detector list
in the hopes of getting more people interested in the hobby, and so more history can be discovered and learned about.
I think he is a bit disappointed that I never really got into it like he is, but sometimes I do find some of the stuff he brings home interesting.
What a great way to encourage people to just dig up these relics and melt them down in to untraceable “scrap” metal. Typical liberal thinking. Farmers will lose there land if the three speckled titmouse is in his fields so he kills everyone pf them to save his farm. Any amatuer will now just keep his mouth shut.
