Interesting topic this guys. I personally have no problem with finds being sold as long as they have been correctly recorded in the first place. That said though I won't let DW turn into E-bay, and have previously removed members who have joined purely to sell items and not to contribute to the DW community.

We don't allow the Detecting stores to advertise their machines for sale on here - we would lose the ethos of DW.

Like most people if it came to a point where I had to sell my finds to keep the roof over my head I wouldn't think twice about it.

To date I have only seen one detecting find advertised for sale on here and that was very recently. If it ever got too on top we would just remove the Selling part of the forum - easy solution.

Interesting debate this - I dare say it will turn up somewhere else soon Roll Eyes

I have to agree with Jeb, Shungav, Geoff and Neil!

I can't see anything wrong with selling finds. Museums buy and sell !!!

I don't usually sell my finds but I do see them as a form of investment that I could sell in the
future if I needed the money.

I have to agree with what Avalon once said to me about selling very valuable coins and artefacts. To
keep them in the house is inviting theft. Indeed, recently there was such an event that was broadcast
on DW.

Avalon takes photo's of his finds and put's them into a book. Great idea as he can still enjoy the
memory of his finds and benefit from the money.

One idea is that DW allows the selling of recorded artefacts for a fee with the proceeds going to
an organisation of Geoff (Proconsul) choice as I know he does his bit behind the scenes.

Interesting thread  Shocked Shocked  My two penneth is that I would like to just find something worth a few BOB anyway. If you did feel the need to sell something you found surely there are plenty of other specialist websites for this action anyway. As a long standing member of DW I would rather see your finds, get them recorded and generally enjoy the hobby.  Detectors for sale is I feel, different. We all want a top detector for the best price but having serial numbers these do have a sort of validity to them for want of a better word.

 Roll Eyes well if i had something of a big value i would sell it , to be honest i will be to scared to keep it at home after i had my house robbed not so long time ago  so everyone got different opinions , at the end of the day if one good find can get me a  Etrac or another machine i would too , lol i am a chef by trade not a millionnaire yet  Roll Eyes c est la vie but will always make sure it will be done in a good manner . Good topic ,nice to see we all have different opinions  Grin

Some of my best finds have gone back to the farmer who let me on his land in the first place. For that or the price of a bottle of whisky now and again, i can go anytime to some of my fields and potter for as long as I want.

I consider it an investment for the time when I find something really worth finding and even then would share it with the farmer coz it is found on his property.

The fun is in the finding and researching for me.

My wife would have something to say about it obviously but again she likes to get me out of the house now and again so she can sit and read a book quietly without having to worry about stopping me from making a mess around the house with all my hobbies.

And she wears the first diamond ring I found on my first days detecting in penarth!
