    Roman coin hoard in Northern Switzerland

    How come when I do yard work, I never find 4000+ roman coins, that are in excellent shape and include some never seen before!
    This sure is a lucky guy...what are the rules for hoards in Switzerland? Great Britain seems to have very fair rules but I know some countries are not nearly as fair...anyone know if the farmer gets the worth of them?

    A Swiss farmer trying to get rid of a molehill found this priceless trove of 4,166 Roman-era coins

    a more detailed article, evidently, the farmer only gets a 'finders fee' -that stinks!

    What, are the descendants of the Caesar's demanding their lost property be returned!? Stamp your mark right on your property, and still your heirs can't claim it.
