Looks like this will no longer be an issue with the fellow. He landed on his feet well. It's nice to read a story with a happy ending.

Many years back, I also had a metal detecting hobby. I was never that succesful at it, and lost interest. The most valuable objects I found was a 1945 50 cent piece and a small gold medalion.

@Setanta,
You never know, they might have taken detours, or even gone on vacation here, right?

Yup, not in my league, even if I was interested!

The Anglo-Saxon gold is worth £3.285m (€3.610m/$5.419) according to a BBC report

@Walter Hinteler,

It was all mangled too, damaged I imagine from ploughing. It must have been buried very shallow...I think the finder confirmed that was the case.
