That's amazing! If you don't mind me asking, but what part of the country is that?

Same as other replies, more Roman than everything else pre Decimal put together.
Ref the pierced coins, is that something others find annoying or would that suffice until a complete example was found ?
Personally don`t like that but as with bottles etc better than nothing, until you can replace like with better.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Biggest issue with a pierced silver or gold coin is the possibility it officially becomes jewellery and falls under the Treasure Act..

There is a date the FLOs use ( can't remember it but it's early medieval I think) where prior to that date, no coins with suspension holes have appeared in any hoards, so are taken to have been removed from circulation as jewellery and fall under the act..

After the date, pierced coins start showing in hoards, so they are not automatically classed as jewellery, and the FLO then look for other factors like inscriptions or other modifications....

Mine just go in a tub along with the better coppers never to be looked at again! There are very few that appeal! :D
