Well there you go. I've always said what was needed was a JCB

Wonder if he'll get a reward

Fantastic - it was good he spotted them - liked the cloth impressions - looked like a coin of Volusian.

I think that Chris Martin had a reasonable price guide for the coins, but most seem to be in the 15 bracket - still should around 60k allowing for some of the more expensive ones (if they are all in that condition) - but doesn't the museum take a cut for 'cleaning' them?
