Found today on pasture,fairly close to where I found the last one.The clod came up and there it was,just lying there and I knew what it was as soon as I saw it and out came a little whimper of delight.
It’s in fantastic nick and I feel so lucky and grateful,the fifth of this tribe so far.....

Nice Cranbourn Chase stater, unusual with two pellets in the coffee bean, a good selling point :thumbsup:

For some inexplicable reason these coins don't usually float my boat but there's something about this one that draws me in.

Great stuff, sir :thumbsup:

Well found, maybe treasure item with the other one found close by, would be classed as a scattered hoard if both silver :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Two close together are a scattered hoard according to the Treasure Act, as I found out with two lots of two Durotriges coins and have two treasure cases on the go
