    Yippee!!!My very first ......

    ...anglo-saxon/frisian silver coin, a so called sceat. This coin can be dated to 680-710 AD and for me is certainly the find of a lifetime

    Wow, the detail on that old coin is amazing. I thought a silver coin that old would be well worn.

    Congrats to you!!

    Congrats on the find of a lifetime Folkert! It is in beautiful condition. What is the size of it, the Sceats I have seen are very small. I have heard many say this is one of the most sought after coins in Europe and the UK, the UK being under German/Saxony rule at the time. HH, Mike
