If, like me, you've never had a whiff of Saxon, here is a useful site where we can see what we're missing.

It's a seller's site, but it's well worth browsing the sections which give pictures of each coin plus a translation of the legend, which can be tricky unless you've got your eye in.

One day... :thumbsup:

It is very good indeed John!
i frequently browse sites like this. It helps in numerous ways....it can certainly help one to recognise items that may otherwise be assumed to be other less interesting stuff. By correctly ID ing bits and bobs it means you don't miss clues to where to concentrate your search.
I also tend to believe in positive thinking and visualisation. In other words, it doesn't just get your eye in...it gets your mind's eye in.
Live long and prosper.

Like yourself, I've found early Saxon brooch fragments, and you'd think coins might follow. Sadly they're a few centuries apart, and I haven't had a sniff of a coin either :cry:

As you say, one day... :thumbsup:
