Friday Update – 12 February 2021

Editorial

Amongst the coins sent out this week are some from detecting finds from the last couple of weeks. It’s good to see that some people have been able to take advantage of the revised government guidance, allowing detecting during lockdown. If you are thinking of going out detecting, there are a number of rules and conditions and so it is well worth checking out the government guidance in Detecting now allowed in lockdown.
