Well done that man Dan.
I used to have an issue regarding having an inferiority complex, I no longer have an issue with being inferior.

Bit surprised that a museum did not want the hoard? Certainly not a common find :g43:

I do find it strange what museums want to keep :g43: Surely it is the recording and photographing of the find that is the important bit?
Equinox 800 and a lot of luck!

Its all the luck of the draw when it comes to any financial gain coming along through any of our finds being legally sold. :g58: :g49:
