Sheddy Posted July 15, 2008 Report Share Posted July 15, 2008 Hi all, I've just joined the forum to show off a coin found at the weekend. It is an unrecorded variant of Spinks 320, a silver unit of Cunobelin. It was found in North Essex, exactly the area you would expect such a coin to be found. It has been submitted to both Spinks and Phillip DeJersey for inclusion in the Spinks book and the C.C.I. The top pictures show the coin as found, the bottom ones show it after cleaning. The difference between this and Sp.320 is that the recorded variant has CVN (Cunobelin) exerge reverse and CAM (Colchester) obverse. On this variant it has CVN on both sides. Before you all go out buying metal detetors, I have been detecting for avor 20 years and this is the first time I have evr found a rare coin! Lots of Hammereds etc. but not rare ones. Enjoy.
