    If it were complete, it may have been banner worthy, but in my opinion its not quite there. Still, I came away thinking I had a slow day, until the clean up!

    UPDATE;

    Its a long process but we are finally at the provisional valuation stage prior to the siting of the final valuation committee.

    As a local Museum wishes to acquire it, they will pay us (50/50 with farmer) the final valuation, but for now its been valued at £60-80. Not a lot for a high statue piece, but it is what it is!

    Nice outcome when a slow day turns into something else. Nice recovery on the silver piece and having found a little piece of history that can be called a treasure. Well done on the Jetton as well a real nice example.

    Nice finds Cru. I found a similar jeton on one of my French trips. I believe it was a Nuremberg type. Awesome badge! It's great that the museum is interested in it, whatever the price offered.

    That lock would not be modern here in the states. What year is that lock?
    Awesome finds as always.
    Do you have a public museum?

    Not sure on the lock, maybe early 1900s

    I do display some finds in my local museum (on loan).
