9-year-old Ella Peters was combing the beach in Fenwick when she came across a rather rare find…

Ella received a metal detector for Christmas this year, but wasn’t utilizing her new equipment last weekend when she uncovered the old 1655 coin buried in the sand in the dune on the beach in Fenwick.

Ella, an avid collector at age nine, is also not about to give up the location of the find.

“She said she doesn’t want to disclose the exact location because she intends to go back and search it again,” said Gretchen Peters. “It’s like she wants to stake a claim to the area where she found it.” – Extract taken from the full article
