It says that you got it back, so at least you get to look after it and it wasn’t a forced sale to a museum or something. ☺️

What a lovely find & at least you got it back, well done.
My silver Viking find was classed as National Importance & then they kept it,
that was after it had been in my cabinet for 10 years, then I took it to the new FLO for info about it when they started visiting local museums.

How did they justify that exactly? Was it an artifact? Therefore treasure?

Unless it's a treasure find or the landowner wants it I'm keeping it, lol.

I haven't got it back yet, but she's nearly finished this batch so it will be coming back soon.

Yep, it was a sword scabbard mount/hanger thingy,
They had it for 2 years, did metal tests on it to confirm it was guilded silver & also soil tests on some bits still left in a recess in the back as they didn't believe I'd found it in this country & where I said I'd found it!
It went to Denmark where an expert told them & showed them similar Viking copper alloy ones, then went through treasure process when back at BM.

I have never found anything that qualified as treasure, but although I'd be sad to lose it I'd still be proud to have found it, would be a right kicker if it was after a few years though, it would be a lot easier if I knew on day 1.

I think that it would be easier to part with something after a few years rather than pretty soon after finding it as you have had the initial enjoyment and got used to it. Still a loss but maybe not quite such a great blow? Well that's how finds are for me. I was not that fussed about a really nice gold treasure item I found which a museum bought but would quite like to keep a medieval silver mount that has been going through the process for seemingly forever, but due to circumstances I did have it for about a year. It's great to keep your own pics too! :thumbsup:
