    Newbie Gordy's stunning triple Celtic pouch

    This has to be a a real contender for pouch of the year especially as this was Gordy's first ever hunt here. He also has the Kudos for being the guy to find the hoard on Aunties

    His rare Celtic silver is cooking up nicely



    10- 40 AD Cunobelinus 'Sitting Griffin' type silver unit - Classed as extremely rare VA 2051, BMC 1868-9 Chris Rudd 30.73
    Cooking to clean up and sent to CCI for recording and confirmed ID
    Rev CVNO in tablet, wrealth border
    Obv Griffin r - on tablet containing CAMV
    I've done a card for the Sitting Griffin unit and it's now CCI 12.0835; I've used the photo you sent but will replace it with a better one when the coin's 'cooked'!

    All the best

    Gallo Belgic 57 BC Celtic gold full stater
    6.35g, 17.74mm
    It's a nice early one, from a known reverse die, from near the start of Gallo-Belgic E class 1 so should date to c.57 BC as the series probably began soon after the start of the Gallic Wars in 58/7; CCI 12.0837.

    No such thing as a bad day if you are metal detecting.
