An interesting article from the BBC

Good to see the system of reporting finds is working and that these are preserved now.

Agreed, the pictures of the cleaned coins and the coins as they were found is a story by itself. I wonder who paid the cleaners, though. I hope the Bucks County Museum gets to keep the hoard and find it satisfying that the BM supports them.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
