Pilgrim penny

What a silver threepenny coin struck in the American Colonies in 1652 was doing beneath the surface of the ground in a farmer's field in the village of King’s Clipstone, Nottinghamshire, U.K., no one can say. But thanks to his metal detector, amateur treasure hunter John Stoner is at least £1 million ($1.63 million) richer for having found it. he describes, "I dug up the soil and out it popped. At first I didn’t think it was anything special. I knew it wasn’t English, but just how important a find it was, I didn’t have a clue."
