Thread: EXTREMELY RARE HAMMERED PENNY

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »
  1. #91
    FURTHER UPDATE:

    Before seeing the farmer last week we gathered the facts together so we could make a joint decision.

    Before straightening about £1000
    After Straightening, cleaning & toning - Auction estimate £3000-6000 (although I did state these normally make over $10,000 in complete/flat condition)

    This was before the good news on rarity but also after a small chip broke off the edge in the packet! (meaning straightening became more risky, the coin would then make about £600 broken)

    We decided that if a Museum was willing to pay £1000 (£500 each) to keep it in this Country, then it would be the best thing for this historic & well provenanced piece.

    Dad is taking it to the Museum, this Weds.....

    Couldn't have been found by a harder working detectorist Cru!
    Congratulations go to your Dad on his 1921 silver Florin recovery as well!

    Love the look of the pattern on this 'Dandy Button' too,
    Dave
