Teenagers’ coin haul
TWO teenage metal detectorists dug up coins from almost 1,000 years ago and potentially worth thousands of pounds each in separate discoveries.
Catering apprentice Reece Pickering, 17, of Great Yarmouth, found a Saxon coin in farmers’ fields in Topcroft, Norfolk. Schoolboy Walter Taylor, 16, who lives near Ongar, uncovered a Henry I silver penny in a field in south Essex.
Both boys’ finds are to be sold at an online auction on October 26.
