Hammer time

A British farmer lost a hammer in his fields one day. Instead of buying a replacement, he borrows a friends metal detector and goes looking for the lost item. He never does find the hammer, but does discover something worth a bit more: a cache of over 15,000 Roman Empire era coins and jewelry which the government ended up purchasing from him for over £1.75 million.
