No that's what I mean it never went to inquest, it was deemed not provable over 300 years so was returned. I had two more last year that had the same outcome but they only took 4 and 8 months.

If a museum has shown interest and the coins can be proven to be from the same group (thus TT) then I'm afraid that as long as the museum has the funds, they will be deemed treasure trove and property of the state and you will get the trifling reward Sad

Roger how were they placed in relation to each other, all in the same hole? and what else has come off that field? if it could be proven that it was a road, path, market site etc and that the coins are from 3 different losses (or give reasonable doubt) then you may be able to make a case that they don't constitute treasure.
