De Jersey (2014):

"The Mossop Archive at the CCI includes undated polaroids from Seaby's of a group of eight cast bronze coins described as "Ancient British tin money found in Kingston-upon-Thames". These are likely to have included the unillustrated lots offered in SCMB Oct. 1974, H4527 and Feb. 1975, H4773, both of which are described as being found "on the foreshore at Kingston-on-Thames, 1974". As Haselgrove (1987, 286 no. 46) notes, this cannot be certainly regarded as a hoard.
The polaroid images are of poor quality and consequently most of the identifications below must be treated cautiously. However the coins are certainly all class I types. One coin (no. 3) has been pierced"
