Posted on November 17th, 2010 in UK | No Comments » |
A three-year-old boy from Essex was playing with his father’s metal detector for the first time in his life when he stumbled upon a gold pedant estimated to be worth over $3.17m.
“I was holding the detector and it went beep, beep, beep. Then we dug into the mud. There was gold there. We didn’t have a map – only pirates have treasure maps.”
- James told the press during an interview.
James Hyatt, now four, had only been scanning the soil for less than a few minutes when his metal detector started beeping. His father, Jason, was amazed to find out his son’s discovery after he pulled the object out. The rare 16th century gold reliquary locket, which was once worn by the royalty. He has been doing it as a hobby for 15 years, but has never found anything like it.
The pendant was believed to date back to the 16th Century and was reportedly be apart of Christ’s crown of thorns.
