While I'm on just a little update on the Saxon gold. It's been collected by spinx and goes to auction soon as the group rules state anything over 500 gets split 50/50 with the land owner. According to them its in unbelievably immaculate condition and should "Sail past 30k" was there words lol. He would have loved to have kept it for his collection but alas paying the farmer his share is impossible :(

fantastically well done ... but beware of auctioneers buyers and sellers premiums .... which can add up to 40%.... It can sometimes pay to cut the middle man out!

Could he get a copy made before it gets sold? Must be a right wrench to let it go

I'd not auction that coin, I'd sell it privately .
Why should some already buckled auction house make a fortune out of your property.


I'll give you 4k for it right now :D

I'd have to have an electrotype copy made. I've handled the electrotype copy of the great buckle from Sutton Hoo - impossible to tell from the real thing, well almost barring experts :))
