SILVER BOXES COIN IT AND STRONGBOX GIVES UP ITS SECRET IN THREE-DAY SALE AT THE CANTERBURY AUCTION GALLERIES 05/11/21

Collections of Anglo-Saxon coins and precious silver and enamel boxes were the highlights of the October three-day sale at the The Canterbury Auction Galleries. The former were discovered in a bank vault only after documents were found in the late owner’s park home and after attracting international interest from fellow numismatists, they sold for a staggering £185,000. The latter, a Canterbury lady’s lifetime collection, sold for £42,980. The two collections had been expected to realise £75,000 and £30,000 respectively.
