Metal Detecting In Siberia - Site Kokorino (Story 10)
Recovering First Coins
While Svetlana and Dima were figuring out how to film the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen of Minelab Explorer II, the sound technician Kolya decided to take an advantage of the situation. He dropped the mike, grabbed an extra metal detector, and went "swinging" nearby. I guessed Rudolf's finds inspired him to get into action right away.
Kolya was very unpleased when Dima called him to get back to their project. But finally they began filming Rudolf showing how to use Minelab Explorer II in the field.
Meanwhile, scorching heat from the sun made all girls go to swim in a cold creek nearby. The heat did not bother me especially when I received the first coin signal, dug a hole, and saw a "keeper" on the bottom.
It turned out to be a 19th century coin minted during the rule of tzar Nicholas I (1825-1855).
