Hi Guys,

Like most, we haven't been out due to the lockdown and on top of that, we needed some new ground to explore.

I rang the farmer on this new permission that we should have been to last year and asked him if he had any land with short crop.
His answer was that he had several acres under Spring wheat and barley with other land awaiting the drilling of vining peas.

We visited the pea field first and had all sorts of finds from a huge shallow lead bucket weighing at least 25-kilo's to a tiny sceat (Spink type 802a series J York dating AD710-760).
The Edward the Confessor coin is Sovereign/Eagles type York dating AD1056-1059

Confessor coins can fetch big amounts on FleaBay. I`ve seen just partial coins fetching big amounts too like £50 for a cut quarter ,and £150 for a cut half of a Confessor coin. . Probably depends on "the coin" as to how much , but I knew someone once who had found what must have been a `purse loss` of them and the amounts they fetched were eye opening, and unexpected at the time.

Stunning coins :Star: That looks like an amazing permission. I am desperate for any coin between the Romans and the Plantagenets so I am very, very envious!
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
