Sue Austin, 'What a find! Medieval Papal seal found by metal detectorist in Oswestry' Shropshire Star : Sep 28, 2017
A Papal seal from medieval Rome has been found in a field in the Shropshire countryside. There have only been eight recorded finds of such seals in the UK, which were placed on important documents by the Pope. The ninth was discovered by those behind new business, Metal Detecting Holidays, near Oswestry, and dates back to the time of Pope Pius II, from about 1400 AD. It is the second find for the Whittington based holiday company this month, after US television star Jocelyn Elizabeth’ found a rare ‘pierced’ French 1553 Silver Teston coin. The Relic Recoverist presenter and other media detectorists including personalities from the National Geographic Channel’s Diggers who were invited by Chris Langston one of the co-founders of the company to try a holiday out for themselves.[...] The Metal Detecting Holidays company was set up Mr Langston, Louise Idoux and John Flaherty. 
Who no doubt aim to pocket hefty profits from selling off the local heritage to all comers for the mode3rn equivalent of thirty pieces of silver.
