Friday Update – 29 January 2021

Editorial

Some strong results from the CNG Triton XXIV this week. Taken together with the prices achieved last week for the Oliver Cromwell Broad and Henry II gold penny, indicate that the coin market remains strong, particularly at the top end.

Whilst we’re still in lockdown and can’t go out detecting, why not have a look through your collection and pick out a few interesting items and send in some photographs to me.
