Lovely coin. Is your dad in the UK, not Germany? Sorry I’m easily confused.

Must be on everyone’s wish list, certainly is in mine ::g Be great to get more detail of the find itself. Somehow I think it’ll increase the chance if me finding one. It won’t, but I like to dream =))

Congratulations =))

The coin we all dream about but know well never find. I s’pose it’ll have to be recorded but even if it’s claimed as Treasure Dad should get a nice little nest egg for his retirement :D

Wonder what detector he’ll be buying :)
