Here's the 12th-13th cent mount I found a while ago and shown on a previous post.
It has now been professionally restored.....cost 110..
I didn't want it to degrade any more hence restoration, it may be the cost of restoration has exceeded its value? I'm not sure however it's done now.

Feel free to give your opinion.

Thanks Chris, Despite all my years of detecting, I have never had the time or patience to learn conservation skills. The chap I use conserves and restores high value objects for collectors and museums, so I guess some one mite tell me I could have had it done cheaper.  Wink

Sometimes it's worth spending a little more to preserve something as rare and special as that.
At least youll get pleasure from looking at it for years to come.
