What Will You Find?

My First Saxon Coin

Went out detecting on one of the farms I have permission on and after digging the usual bullets and shotties for an hour I was heading for cover from the rain and I had another signal which seemed deep so I dug it expecting another bullet but to my surprise was a coin, a saxon coin which a friend put up on detectorist and ukdn for me, a couple of people suggested sending a picture to the early medieval coin corpus which I did and as it turned out I have found a new unpublished and unique coin of Æthelbert II.
