Papal bullas don't show up too often and then where you least expect them. I reckon that rather than them being discarded people would have carried them as talismans, the Pope himself may even have touched it! Maybe not so lucky when they lost it on a field though?
Add yours to see if we can get a full set!

Here's one I found: Pope Urban IV, 1261 – 1264.

There`s been a lot of Kings and Queens of England but I still havn`t had a good few certain Monarchs coins since the begining of the English throne started especially the earlier ones below a 1000.

Haha...it comes from a field which was the family farm of several generations of local priest in the years up to the revolution. Because of this i tend to think it was placed in the ground by one of this family but a good deal later than it was made. It was pasture when i found it but has since been ploughed so it was lucky to be unscathed. As detectorists we save an awful lot of stuff from the plough but also from the use of modern chemicals.

Mine was laying just deep enough to escape any subsequent ploughing in older times. :D
