We’re always very appreciative when readers share their story of one of their finds; this week Kevin Lee has kindly sent in his own account of the day he made his find of a lifetime.
In readers finds the addition of a countermark on a coin significantly increases its value. In PAS find is the story of how “Crux Pellit” coinage led to the execution of the Earl of Mar. Plus we have the incredible story of Charles Masson, a 19th Century adventurer, and how he is linked to a Roman period ring found in County Durham.
