Friday Update: 4 March 2022

Editorial

Three rare recent detecting finds come up for auction this week; a gold thrysma, an Edward VI Irish shilling and, the star of the show, an Edward III gold “leopard” which is estimated at £100,000 – £140,000 but could sell for a lot more.

The find of the week is a continental copy of an English coin; unusual because it is a short cross penny. PAS finds include a Viking sword, found in a river bank.

In the news, there’s the story of how the only surviving artefact from a War of the Roses battle has been tracked down; it helps to confirm how the battle was fought. Plus, The Treasure Registrars thank two detectorists for donating their finds to their local museums.
