The find comprises sixteen silver coins: thirteen English groats, 1352/3-1526/9; one half-groat of Henry VII (1485-1509); and two double patards from the Burgundian Netherlands (1467-74). No associated items were reported. The latest coins in the group (nos 11-14) all belong to the early years of Henry VIII's second coinage, struck between 1526 and 1529, giving a consistent terminus in the late 1520s. With one exception, the English coins are all groats (4d) and apart from the survival of one heavier coin of Edward III, all have weights in keeping with the standard current at the t…
