I have not been on Treasurenet for a long time, to be honest lost a bit of passion for the detecting but I thought I might show you a first for me that I found last time out back in August.
The cut half coin is that of King Stephen from the time of the Anarchy in English history. Coins of Stephen can be hard to find and such can command high prices, they also usually be very poor in quality, so when I found this one with a nice portrait I was especially pleased.
Stephen ruled England from 1135 until 1154.
The coin is from the Carlisle Mint.
I have posted a picture of a full coin, showing what it would have looked like, and the poor condition which they are usually found.
Hopefully over the coming year after the restrictions are eased from this awful virus I can post a lot more on Treasurenet.
