Historica and Metal Detecting Finds

Historica and Metal Detecting Finds are sold at specialist auctions led by experts Alan Smith and Adam Staples.

Exceptional metal detecting finds go under the hammer at Hansons. For example, a 15th century brooch found near Kirby Muxloe Castle, Leicestershire, in 2016 made £20,800 from a guide price of £6,000.

It was believed to be a gift of love from William Hastings, 1st Baron Hastings, to his wife Katherine Neville, who he married in 1462.
