    £130, there not considered rare anymore. 25 years ago, it would have been around £500, a lot have been found since.

    I'll admit I don't know much about these types of artifacts, but based on your description it's an amazing recovery. Very cool and unique piece to add to your collection.

    So many of your finds leave me speechless, and so the pattern continues. I am so amazed at the depth of history you uncover. Congrats on another exceptional find, and thanks for continuing to share!
