Saxon coins - you can't help but love them!

Many of you will know that I am a moderator and also help ID coins on UK Detector Net. Well what a lovely coin came up this week. Found by a guy with a metal detector near York, this lovely Saxon Styca. Okay it isn't Silver or Gold, and isn't worth a fortune, but it is a fantastic coin of its type, and one I will be adding to my online database in due course.

It is a A styca of Archbishop Wigmund of York
AD 837 - 849/50
