We have had the post 'Has anyone ever drawn a Blank' but what lucky days have you had not counting hoards. It may be that you have had roman, saxon and medieval silver coins in the same day. Perhaps you have had six separate hammereds in the same outing. Things along those lines.

A few years ago I was on a heavily detected club site and only dug about 8 holes in an hour and a half but had three hammereds. Last year I had  similiar day but had three cracking roman brooches.

It would have to be finding a broken sovereign ring  one day
without the sovereign, and actually finding the early viccy
Sovereign the next day about a quarter of a mile away.

finding over thity roman coins on a site    near Lincoln on one day
I arranged  for a three day weekend dig the farmer only charged us a tenner each and checked all was ok at night
I took about thirty others the farmer did warn us to beware of the black panther which    which was on the fields  at night In fact in the early hours I woke u p and the side of the tent was shaking I was thinking it might be thepanther and lashed out with a stick Then one of the lads appeared and admitted it was him acting the fool
we went to the farm three times and always had roman
Sadly last year the farmer died but his son said we would be welcome anytime
