Just six pounds as a median price per piece, making a lot of them even cheaper? That's it? Even being from such a famous hoard doesn't give them some pedigree, some additional value? And couldn't...

First of all, I am very much surprised at this news of such low (in my opinion, of course) estimation. Maybe it was done deliberately so the museum has a chance to acquire this hoard at the discount...

"An anonymous bidder yesterday saw off competition from a museum to pay 2.3m for a Roman helmet found in a field."

What a shame. This is truly a national treasure.

Dear Mauseus,
Do you know by any chance where and how it will be possible to get such a booklet?
