Cru'dad has had 2 short solo outings, today & yesterday on the Site we call 'The Hill'. (4 1/4 hours total)
I wanted him to grid this area of the bottom slope, as I hoped he would get a Sceat. We had found 1 before in this general area & there were some signs of Middle Saxon artefacts including the strap-end he got yesterday. Sceat's are near impossible to target & 1 or so a year is all you can hope for, so this hunch worked out really good. Especially as I'm still recovering from my knee injury, & therefore we are down a man.

1 scrappy
Medieval Buckles
13th C Annular Brooch (not had many complete ones)
Saxon Strap-end 8-)
Crappy Hammered (maybe Lizzy I)

What a beauty of a Sceat, great looking 13th C Annular Brooch also. :occasion14:
Big congrats to Cru'dad on the recoveries.
Agree on the one beat hammered-silver is silver

Although we would be more than happy with 1 Sceat a year, this is now our 2nd, meaning we have had 1 each. (Although mine above was rarer)

UPDATE:

This scarce coin is now recorded with the leading Authority & they commented as follows:

''An excellent example of Series E (variety G1), which I have recorded as EMC 2021.----. There are now 44 coins of this variety on EMC.''

Congrats on the top shelf find.
Not quite as pretty as the golden pony coins, but I'm sure s just as nice to find, and own.

Yeap, not as pretty but a much rarer find than the Celtic Gold.

UPDATE:

We are doing our yearly meeting with the landowner of this field on Monday & I have decided to give them this Sceat (I do have a slightly lesser example of this type of G1). This is to off-set some of the better coins I want to keep like the lovely Celtic Gold I had this year!

The Sceat is amazing and the buckles so represent everyday life that they are always a thrill to see
