Detectorists were talking on a forum about a dig due to take place the next day. Part of the conversation was about what they’d like to find and, apart from one poster, the general discussion was full of negative thinking. One guy even said, “I’m aiming low then I can’t be disappointed.”
All this negativity reminded me of a post I made in 2013 on positive thinking. Luckily I was able to retrieve the text and I now regurgitate that which was presumed lost. Apologies to my older subscribers who may be familiar with some of the content.

When I was a rookie detectorist and knew no better, I found a Celtic gold stater and unceremoniously stashed it in my jean’s pocket alongside modern coins, keys and other stuff a bloke usually carries. Not one of my proudest moments.
I soon learned that I needed a reasonably safe container for my precious coins and did what most metal detectorists do and employed a tin box, which I lovingly lined with foam. That’s one of them on the left! It worked, but wasn’t perfect. There’s a better way of doing things!
