My first ever Saxon Coin

Post by rst33 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 6:07 pm

I went out yesterday on a ploughed field and found this coin
with XP Deus setting 2
found it around 5" deep
I would love to know a date and exactly what / who it is
I also found this bit of metal pot on the same field which i believe could be saxon
I would love to know if it is

Well done on the sceat, small enough to find usually but yours is broken so you did well to winkle that out ::g

The details can make all the difference in identifying the sceat types so some clearer photos would help and if you include the images on the post rather than a link (annoying pop ups on photobucket) you may get more replies on that and the other fragment which looks interesting ::g

You could also record it with the Early Medieval Corpus at the Fitzwilliam in which case you would get a very good ID from Dr Martin Allen
