    BEST DAY EVER!!!!! Saxon and Viking in one day!!!!!!!

    well im still very much in shock went on a field i have been on many times with not much luck but today is the day!! first of all i found this Monster looking item i thought it was old looking got home gave it a wash and it looked better after, it has been ID as A VIKING bridle cheek piece in the Viking Ringerike !!

    Then this beautiful coin popped up about 7 foot away from the VIKING item, my first thought was its old and not a normal coin i normally find,

    Its been ID as Saxon penny of OFFA. DATED AD 765 - 792

    This is the best day of my metal detecting life thanks for LOOKING!!

    The value will depend on how many there are of this type, I doubt there are many, and not as good as yours, it's in stunning condition, one of the high end collectors might just push the boat on this one but you have to know the right people

    Well you wanted a rare coin & you got the double bonus of condition. Most mortals will never get one, then add the Cheek Piece which is very well executed with well defined features & you have a double banner day, I voted already.

    Coin - start at 2000 & as SS states to the right person ?,

    I would love to fill that offa hole in the collection but I have as much chance of getting a roman Gold
