Two detecting finds from recent years have made the news this week: An Anglo-Saxon gold mancus is going to auction at DNW and is expected to fetch £200,000. Plus the Shropshire Bulla, a Bronze Age sun pendant, is going on public display for the first time in the county in which it was found. Both finds are extremely rare.
I’ve 5 more readers valuations, including a George V sovereign and a William the Lion penny. In the PAS review, finds include a Bronze Age palstave axehead in exceptional condition plus a 1/8 ducat, minted in Zeeland, with the nickname “pietje”.
