  1. You can rule out 5a1. The letter X is incorrect and the crown ends for class 5a1.5b2 is more likely. This guide is a bit better. It may help. Longcross Coin Guidebook
  2. Cheers Rob. That settles it then. Thank you. Stu.
  3. Thanks Rob That is indeed the same coin. Someone has marked Ex ER Duncan Elias on one of the tickets and bought from Patrick Finn 18/2000 No 507 Illustrated. I have the Elias book in my library. The type is listed as Elias 288. https://ibb.co/BPWwCQC
  4. I've picked up a coin with 3 tickets. 2 are basic with limited details but one has Patrick Finns name on it and a list number. List 18 which i think is the last list before he passed away. Its coin 507 from list 18/2000. Does anyone have a copy of the list or the PF memorial volumes who could confirm if the coin was sold by Patrick? It also mentions ER Duncan Elias as having ownership of the coin at one stage. Tia. Stu.

    John, Henry or someone else.

    Its a coin of John. Class 5a2 PERES .ON.DVRE. (Pieres durham) Has the reversed S on the reverse. Hes the only moneyer i can match to that reversed S at the end of his name. He also has the stop after HENRI in 5a2 coins.

    Good post Jerry. Thank you for your detailed response. I personally do not keep anything from my FLO. We have a good rapport as we share the same name. Everything i posted was just generally chit chat I've picked up from detectorists i know. I've been out of the game now for a few years but still have contact with people who actively detect. The main concern from most people is where is it all heading and is the hobby getting restricted slowly. Stu.

    Changes to Treasure laws in UK

    I don't have a problem with it myself. It was just people getting concerned about say a bronze roman coin that may be of an emporer never found in Britain being seized from auction houses or spotted on ebay and seized. Individual coins of rare emporers can fetch a good price at auction way above what any musuem would like to pay. If they don't wish to pay it they could claim it under these new laws. Where is it heading is the big question and what will they now constitute as treasure going forward. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport have a task force set up apparently scouring social media , ebay and auction sites looking for items to seize / acquire.
  13. New regulations coming in with regard to Treasure laws. Caused quite a stink within metal detecting circles. There's concerns about stuff being seized if you post it on social media. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-55179360

    Agree about the dix noonan description that's mess. Not sure who classified that or inputted that information. I have spoken with our mutual friend and he doesn't like it . So it's fair to say its definitely moody. I did notice some of the differences you've pointed out but not all of them. I definitely dodged a bullet with it and its opened my eyes for sure. Stu.
