Post-medieval coin hoard from Newton-with-Scales, Lancashire (2004T30) I have examined a group of coins reported found at Newton with Scales in January 2004. The coins are all official English issues of the traditional sterling standard, i.e. 92/5% fine metal.The coins consist of three denominations: 11 groats (fourpences) of Mary and Elizabeth Tudor, and a sixpence and 7 threepences of Elizabeth, amounting to a sum with a face value of five shillings and fivepence, which would be something like £20-30 in modern terms.The coins would certainly have circulated together, and the lim…

Overview 31 lead discs, 29 of which were discovered in context in three groups (hereafter Group A, B, and C). The weights appear to have been placed into the side of a ditch. Group A comprised 10 lead discs; Group B comprised 5 discs and Group C comprised 9 lead discs. Four further lead weights were discovered scattered in the plough soil in the immediate area of the stratified finds; three more were discovered in the area by another detectorist who also has permission to search the site. Owing to the small scale of the excavation it was not clear in what wider context the finds we…

A Late Fourteenth Century hoard of English and French Jettons. The hoard consists of seven English and twenty four French / Tournai copper alloy jettons, two billon coins, one of Spain the other of Brittany, and three blank discs. This group of thirty six pieces (plus one other at present separated from the main group) dates from the second half of the 14th century. The loss of these pieces most probably took place within a few years on either side of 1400. The presence of three blank discs suggests that this group may well be part or whole of a working set of counters. The varying…

In 1984 a Founders Hoard of late Bronze Age metal work was unearthed. The Hoard consisted of eight objects. Two of the objects join together to form what could be part of a bronze bowl or caldron; however the piece could simply be a fragment of metal working debris. The Hoard consists of the following: 1) A fragment of a socketed axe SUSS-8F4D33 (found within the metal detectorists collection - it was not kept with the rest of the hoard, but is likely to be from the same find site, the detectorist is deceased). 2) Two fragments of a bronze bowl or caldron or possibly metal worki…

Report on a case of possible Treasure from Leiston area, Suffolk (2006 T334) This report concerns a hoard of six silver pennies of Henry II (1154-89), found at Leiston in Suffolk. All six coins are of the Cross-and-Crosslets (Tealby) type of Henry II, issued between 1158 and 1180. Typically, the coins are poorly struck, and quite worn, so that much of the inscription is illegible in each case, which hinders precise identification. The six coins are as follows: 1. Class C, moneyer Willam, mint uncertain (probably Newcastle). 1.26g 2. Uncertain class, mint and moneyer. Almost…

Items Discovered 1. The sword blade fragment is a short length of blade weighing 11.52 grammes; the lentoid midrib is demarcated by two grooves. Analysis of the metal indicates that it is bronze. Swords like this are known as Carp's Tongue swords because the shape of the blade tip is said to resemble the tongue of that fish. Few complete Carp's Tongue swords are known in Britain. Most specimens consist of scrap fragments imported in that form from the mainland of Europe (Sealey 19915,7 with refs). They were current in the Ewart Park phase of the late Bronze Age dated c.1020…

Treasure report by Adrian Marsden: A hoard of cu alloy objects found in close association with one another and very close to a radiate imitation manufacturer's hoard found in November 2004 (see file). These comprise two RB bracelets and 10 sestertii of the second century. The coins, where condition at deposition can be ascertained, were all heavily worn, suggesting a mid-third century date. This suggests that both bracelets and coins were intended for melting down to produce radiate imitations, a theory made more likely by the fact that one sestertius appears to have had pieces cut fr…

Two fused fragmentary pennies, both of Aethelred II's 'crux' type, struck c991-7. A blob of melted silver is fused to the surface of one of the coins; this may have constituted part of a third coin although it is equally possible that it came from one of the two coins present. The fact that the coins were lying in contact with one another before fire fused them together demonstrates that they must have been lost or hidden at the same time.

Description of find The group as found originally constituted six coins, all pennies of the late 13th or early 14th centuries. Unfortunately, one of these was subsequently lost before it could be handed in to Norfolk Landscape Archaeology's Identification and Recording Service. Cursory examination, however, revealed it to be of a similar date to the other five. The five surviving coins are all pennies of Edward I. One is an Irish penny struck at Waterford and showing signs of wear, the other four are in much crisper condition and can all be dated to a short period at the end of Edwa…

A hoard of 35 Late Bronze Age copper-alloy objects. It comprises 15 socketed axeheads of various types and sizes, nine of which are more or less complete, the remainder incomplete due to old breaks. One is much smaller than the remainder, and one has more elaborate moulded decoration extending from the mouth. At least two examples appear to have the remains of casting sprues attached to their mouths and others may have been deliberately broken. In addition there is a fragment from a winged palstave or axe, as well as 4 smaller fragments from the mouths of socketed axes. The axes were …

A forger's hoard. This record and the associated records linked to this one are for 121 coins or blanks which were found in around 1994. The finder also found a fragment of copper alloy rod, a sherd of courseware pottery and a brooch. Some coins (not included in the above total) were given to the farmer. From a study of the material it is most likely that this constitutes a forgers' hoard which consisted mainly of metal blanks, destined to be struck into coins. Given that the two identifiable coins are 'barbarous radiates' of the period c. 275-85, it is reasonable to assume that the h…

A hoard of fused silver coins, probably Medieval late 12th - 13th century. Curator's report: I have examined a fused group of coins reported found in Wandsworth, London. There are virtually no details that can be made out, but from the size of the coins and perhaps a couple of visible letters, it appears likely to me that they are late 12th or 13th century silver pennies, possibly of the Short Cross coinage (1180-1247). If this is correct, they would have a silver fineness of over 90%. The weight of the group is 21.45g, suggesting that there might be around 15 coins pres…

Early Post-Medieval lump of at least seven partially melted silver coins. Only the reverse of the uppermost coin is apparent, this appears to be an oval garnished shield of arms as found on some halfcrowns of Charles I. The small number of coins present suggests that they are most probably of a high denomination, perhaps halfcrowns, one could even be a crown. The melting down of higher value coins of Charles I suggests that the coin lump may well represent some illicit Civil War activity.

All of the present coins are Roman silver coins of a denomination known as the denarius (plural denarii). The earliest was a coin of Vespasian. The latest closely dated issue is of Marcus Aurelius with a combination of the emperor's titles for the year 172; although also present was a coin of his empress Faustina II which could have been struck anytime up until her death in 176. In terms of composition this group of coins is consistent with other hoards of this period. The coins can be summarised as follows: Summary: Emperor Quantity Vespasian, 69-79AD 1 Domitian, 81-96AD 1 T…

A detailed list accompanies this report. There are six pennies and one halfpenny in the group. The latest dates to the 1360s and the older coins are generally reduced to the lower weight standard introduced in 1351, so it is very likely that this is a group deposited togetheron a single occasion. Since there are no…

A hoard of debased long-cross pennies/coins, possibly of Edward I (AD 1272-1307). Treasure case No. 2009 T756. Total weight: 1066gms. The coins are mostly consolidated; they were originally in a small vessel (recently broken) and have taken on the shape of this vessel in their consolidation. The coins all appear to have suffered some corrosion as they are mostly white in colour. Some coins display a green copper staining showing that some of the silver is debased. From the consolidated mass it is hard to estimate the quantity of coins but there may be c.200-300.

I have examined a group of coins reported found in the Ilam area in Staffordshire. All are official silver coins of the medieval kings of England and will therefore be of the traditional sterling standard, c. 92.5% fine metal. Three denominations are present: pennies, half-groats (twopences) and groats (fourpences). The coins range in date from the early 14th century to the early reign of Henry VI. This range is wholly consistent with 15th century currency, since there was no complete English recoinage after 1279 and older coins, increasingly worn and clipped down to more recent weigh…
