In Auction News, some strong results from the three auctions this week. Plus a look forward to Timeline’s coin auction on 28 February.
Detecting in the News has the stories of two more important finds made by a detectorist.
Plus valuations of readers’ coins, including one described as “fresh out of the ground”. If you’ve been out detecting again or taking the time to go through your collection, please contact me with anything you find of interest or would like me to identify.

Detecting in the News
Each week I will be publishing a Quick Quiz of typically 6 or 8 questions on a particular theme. You will receive an immediate score and explanation of the answers and so hopefully, these will be both fun and informative.
