Saxon sceatta 680-710 spinks 775

Post by jondurandsilver » Fri May 17, 2019 8:54 pm

Having found a bronze sceat recently I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice silver one about 15ft away.
Lovely signal using deus lite on Gary's hot program it was 3 inches deep.
I thought I had damaged this coin by washing it with a toothbrush and fairy liquid but it has since developed a lovely patina after taking these pics.
Anyone know how to clean a bronze sceat?
Hope you enjoy seeing this coin. :;@

As sceats go, that's a nice example ::g Regards ss47

"Anyone know how to clean a bronze sceat?"

If it's bronze, it's a snide. Got any pics?

A few zaps of electrocution will sort the 'TIC'. ::g

Probably my favourite coins, some very strange symbolism on them!

How envious I am of people that have the opportunity of finding such coins as that, as up here where I live they were never ever used nor Staters, and so we can never have a chance at finding any such coins. They are really nice finds and your blessed with having at least an opportunity to be in with a chance of finding any. That coin is a really nice one. ::g

I agree with you on that and I think it must be due to the fact that we're so close to mainland Europe and have been visited by so many different tribes and civilisations over the last two or three thousand years. And they have all left their mark in some way or another.
