Based on the dates of the coins one wonders if they were hidden for safety during French Revolution.
As you say, good luck to them  Smiley

Would they have been allowed to keep them if found in this country under similar circumstances?

I've never fully understood the rules regarding " treasure trove" etc. I think these were changed fairly recently.
I'd imagine that one would be allowed to keep and sell them.

Generally they would have been claimed by the Crown in this country, and they can direct how the items are disposed of.

That is very thoughtful of the Crown to relieve us of the stress and worry of what to do with all that gold Smiley

No need to dig in your back garden. Enter my Adam Cranford competition. The prize is a one ounce 99.999% gold bar.
The downside is you have to know the books better than the author and beat other people with the same idea :-)
