Its a funny old game…


You go out to the same fields…. and according to the research there is nothing there….and to be honest you find a load of tat…day after day…week after week and then…these:

Lovelies

Latest coins

For the uninitiated left to right:

Saxon Frisian Type D Sceat minted somewhere around 700AD – Probably a Flemish import. Weight 1.03g. EMC2014.0276

William I (The Conqueror) 1066-1087 – Weight 1.23g – Minted by GODRIC of London, somewhere between 1074-1077. EMC 2014.0277. Note Godric was a Saxon name. So William was still using Saxon moneyers for his coinage as his reign ended these important, prestigious roles went more and more to Norman/French moneyers and the Saxons names disappear. Fascinating….

Hentry III 1207-1272 (Continental Forgery of a Type 5 Long Cross Penny minted somewhere between 1250-1278/9) .

So you see as the great Greavsie would say…it’s a funny old game….but my word when you strike it lucky ….its a beautiful game too….
