Timeline Originals are holding an auction on the 16th.  Most of the coins are very expensive but there are a couple that might not break the bank. At least it will give an idea of what's on offer.

I would keep looking on eBay, if you have some idea of what you are doing or have somebody to consult, they're available on one of the coin forum sites on the Net, is a good way, as coins tend to be cheaper than in the high profile auctions.  A decent but faily plain Northumbrian base metal sceat or styca, in nice condition can be had for £30 to £60, or a nice silver penny of Aethelred II, Cnut or Eadweard the Confessor, could be bought for around £200+, less for a poorer example.  Otherwise try one of the reliable dealers who will guarantee their coins as genuine :-----  Baldwins, Spinks, Mark Rasmussen, Andy Gillis, Silbury coins, Classical Numismatic Group, Mike Vosper, Anglo Saxon Coins, Lloyd Bennett, Studio Coins , Time-Lines etc.etc.  Enough there I think!?
