That is the one which Mail online stated was valued at £15000, and was found by
amateur treasure hunter, (and naming him). Just goes to show how wonderfully
inaccurate some of the media can be. Good luck to Brian.

Not quite sure how the Mail was expected to accurately predict the hammer price ... that said they were closer than the guy who valued his founding fathers coin at a £1,000,000 and ended up trudging home with a miserable £5,000.

Yes luck definitely is a major factor ... but generally its a fact that Great sites = Great finds.

:shock: That's a really special gold coin, in such pristine condition as well after all those years in the earth ...

:g58: The news of this find and its sale must do some good for our hobby [and at the same time counter the recent bad publicity of the "unscrupulous policeman"] ...

Any landowner who gets to read [or find out in other ways] about this superb find and how the proceeds from the sale were distributed can only shine a positive light on the importance and magnitude of such historical [and valuable] discoveries ...
