Thought I would share some photos of my best ever metal detecting find from a few years ago . A King Stephen penny 1138 - 1154 from a period in Englands history of Civil war and Anarchy ( when SHTF )
The coin was found while metal detecting the tractor tram lines in a frozen field full of sugar beet plants. Coins of this type were struck using defaced dies . It was recorded with the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge on their EMC Early Medieval Corpus ( a record of early medieval single loss coins that have been found in England ) and is a rare variant of its type.
Can you see the Kings Portrait in the Obverse ?
