Coin found with the XLT!! King Henry VI minted in London

Hello White's,

My friend John and I went out on a hunt last Saturday, after an hour drive we were in luck seeing land. We came to a nice quite surrounding with thick trees, always a nice place to hunt. After hunting for a while we had only found bottle caps, after getting a good signal we began to shovel the dirt away. At first it was just a beautiful shiny capsule. At a closer examination we could make out images and characters. It seemed to be some sort of currency.

We decided to go to a goldsmith and hope that he knew what we had found. Sure enough he knew, we had found a 1422-1461 King Henry VI minted in London! I owe it all to my faithful White's XLT!

Thanks,

Henk (Netherlands)
