DNW sell coins from a “Collection of Suffolk Detectorist”
DNW held an auction of coins, tokens and medals on 12 April 2022 . The auction includes 39 coins from a “Collection of a Suffolk Detectorist”. These are wide-ranging finds from a Gallo-Belgic stater to a Victoria Half-Sovereign. The detectorist certainly had a successful and interesting career. All my selected lots are from this collection.

Edward IV light coinage Ryal with mintmark sun on the reverse. E on flag at stern and B in the waves below to indicate Bristol mint. Bristol was one of the most important of the new provincial mints but the output was still small compared to London. The earliest coins of Bristol have the sun mint mark and are less common than the later crown mint mark.
