That's a great find and an even better story. reminds me of the Roman coin of Domitian II. Seems everyone at the time of the first coin being discovered, thought it to be a forgery as nobody had heard of this usurper. that is until a second coin turned up in a hoard about 100 years later :g50:

“ It had been expected to sell at auction in London for £15,000 but went under the hammer for £32,000.

With auction house fees added on the total price paid by the buyer was £41,200.“


Wow, that’s a good earner for the auction house
