A small fragment of an Early Medieval to Medieval silver hammered coin. The three lines visible on the left-hand fragment are possibly reminiscient of the drapery seen on some 11th-century Anglo-Saxon coins, but this is by no means certain.


Recorded at the East Cambridgeshire Detecting Association club meeting on 28/11/2011.
