    Shotgun Alley - Extremely Rare Coin!

    I spent 2 days on shotgun alley pumping in 15 hours detecting along with Dads 6 hours 45 minutes. Cleared tons of shotgun shells but it was well worth it.

    25 Roman Bronze Coins
    Roman silver of Valens (now our best year for Roman silver)
    3 Hammered - Scarce cut Irish Qtr included
    Buckles
    Tudor Clothes Fastener (broken)
    17th C Pipe Tamper
    Georgian Pan/Trade Weight
    13th C Annular Buckle with pin!
    2 Fibula bits
    Medieval Casket Key
    Medieval Horse Pendant
    Tudor Leather Mount
    2 Jetton
    Rose Farthing

    A Celtic Potin from circa 100BC which is listed in the latest coin book as Unique? - Not anymore.

    Celtic Potin pictures.

    2005 Cat. Info:

    '16. Thurrock M-Line. c. 100-75BC. Cast potin. 17-
    19mm. 3.99g. Remains of blobby head, neck formed by
    sprue./ Thick central bar following sprue line, large
    letter M above, thinner line below. Apparently
    unpublished, though compare reverse with Gäumann
    28. CCI 97.2032. Extremely fine, as cast, with bold
    sprues and exquisite dark toning. Of the highest rarity,
    possibly unique. Ex Adrian Clarke collection, found at the
    Waldershare Park metal detecting rally, near Dover, Kent,
    1996. Potentially an important numismatic piece. £400
    Dr Philip de Jersey says: “A bizarre cast bronze from Kent.
    While there is a possibility that it’s Gaulish, on balance it’s
    perhaps more likely to be a late Thurrock type, with the bull
    reduced to the thick bar on the line of the sprue, and just a
    ragged M above, rather than the neat MA found on the earlier
    classes. The obverse is equally stylized, with a barely
    recognizable head. This might perhaps have been one of the
    last of the Thurrock types, before the transition to the flat
    linear types of the early and mid-first century BC.” Andreas
    Gäumann says that a cast potin with a somewhat similar reverse
    was sold at public auction in Strasbourg, 19-20 June 1984, and
    tentatively catalogues it as ‘incertaines du Centre’, because there
    is no other published record of the type (Potinmünzen der
    Kelten, 2000, p.6, fig. 28). The degraded head of our coin bears
    little resemblance to the Strasbourg specimen. Moreover, our
    coin has been incontrovertibly recorded as a Kentish find. So, I
    agree with Philip that it is probably Cantian rather than
    Gaulish. These transitional types are fascinating.'

    NO, funny enough I got my first potin last year just before he sold the land (you know which one). That one was a similar age but a little earlier.

    Great Find ! - I think it's incredible that you were able to identify it since they are obviously crude and irregular in form . BANNER !

    ( this hunt has a number of excellent finds - The silver Roman , the Hammered silvers , the pennanular brooch w/pin intact and
    obviously the nearly unique Celtic piece - point being this probably would be a banner group if the one didn't secure it .)

    Yeap, I met Philip he was a great asset, but his funding was cut & now we have no CCI numbers anymore. Sad really. The PAS just can't cut it.

    Trust me I nearly didn't. This is the only book its published in & I thought it was the normal Bull type.

    Its part of a class of coins that are the earliest minted in Britain, coin wise you can't get much older, only about 50 years or so.

    Thanks, all the silver coins I found, along with the brooch, most of the Roman Coins (although Dad had a couple of nice ones), plus the potin.
