We had a "bit of a day" down South.
Potential Gallo Belgic quarter stater in the first 20 minutes, 20 hammered, IA bits, Roman bits and lots of "other stuff" it wasn`t easy with lots of signals as the land is genuinely "undetected" but the overall quality was stunning.
Coin of the day.....

Already recorded on the EMCC and Dr Allen said: "Thanks for the images of this interesting new find, which I have recorded as EMC 2021.0242.
This does not conform to any of the varieties of Series Q identified by Michael Metcalf in the 1990s, but it does feature in the 2nd edition of Tony Abramson's Sceatta List as type 65-30. You are right that this is related to Series QIII."

Artefact of the day was a hard choice... someone found a BA spear shaft but didn`t realise until they got home. :lol: Somebody else fished a La Tene brooch out of his "scrap bag".

Well the "potential quarter stater" turns out to have stirred some debate!
In the field folk suggested collar stud etc as it was tiny, smaller than a quarter by dimensions and weight.
So far the research suggests a coin of the Central European Boii tribe who made staters down to 1/32ths!
Subject to weighing by the finder we are thinking an "eighth of a stater"
Central Europe. Boii. 1st century BC. 1/24 Stater (Gold, 7 mm, 0.33 g), latest Athena-Alkis-series. Flat or irregular bulge. Rev. Irregular design with dots and lines (reworked Athena-Alkis die). Dembski 506-509. Flesche 451ff. Paulsen 151-154. SLM -, cf. 1150 (1/8 Stater). https://leunumismatik.com/en/lot/5/47/[5]
