Metal detectors dispute discovery of 14th century seal

Two metal detector enthusiasts are laying claim to discovery of a 13th or 14th century seal depicting the murder of Thomas Becket. The seal was found in a North Yorkshire field.

Carl Richardson and Richard Hunter were working together when the seal was discovered and, according to Hunter, had a "gentlemen's agreement" to split the UKĀ£10,000 value of the find. Richardson believes the money belongs to him.
