Focus on UK Metal Detecting: Mistaken Identity?

Since these days anyone can come across all manner of archaeological artefacts and decide to sell them, detecting1969 ( 15 Feedback score, all private sales) from Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom writes:
hi and welcome, my hobby is metal detecting been doing it now nearly two years, I came a cross this Saxon penny last Friday and decided to sell it, i know nothing about it a part from its silver and i have been told it could be very rare, size of the coin 20 mm weighs 1.9 grams. I will start the auction of at 99p so grab yourself a bargain listing only for one day quick sale, good luck. "This listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in the listing".
Yes, he probably forgot to say that it was Wulfred Archbishop of Canterbury silver group II, transitional monogram, Obv. facing bust with large pellet each side of face. R. monogram of DOROBERNIA. Moneyer Saeberht (North 240. S.888)  sold for 2600 quid in June 2009 by London Coins - so how did it end up in a Nottinghamshire metal detectorist's finds pouch, and why's he in such a hurry to sell it ?He's also selling a Garrett Euro Ace metal detector.
