The images of this find were sent in by Colin Smith, who said he wanted a valuation in order to give a farmer his share of its value.
Colin’s find is a Bronze Age axe head, which is an example of the flanged type and will date from circa 1500 BC. The wide flange on each side spreads out to a point. Had there been a ridge roughly in the centre then this axe head would have been an early example of the palstave type.
Like many things, Bronze Age axe heads aren’t as rare as they used to be. However, a plus point is that this one is earlier than most of those that turn up. Unfortunately, the images appear to show a good deal of corrosion, which is a minus point. As it stands my valuation range would be no higher than £70 – £80.
