The Betley Hoard Tempus

Tempus Metal detecting and Archaeology group. Delivered an interesting and rare find to one of the North West Finds Liaison Officers – Vanessa Oakden.


The find of 19 Jettons would normally constitute a hoard and classed as treasure if they were actually coins. But in this case as they are only coin like, are not classed as such. The find made on a site in Shropshire was made by 3 members. Primarily Graham Withers who discovered a scatter of 14 tokens, Dave Clarke with 3 and Dave Sadler 1.
