Big tippers: Viking coin hoard found underneath Stockholm airport

by Thor on Apr. 10th, 2008

The largest treasure trove of old coins was unearthed at the airport in Stockholm, Sweden. This new collection is the largest and oldest collection of viking-collected coins ever found on the Swedish mainland. No word if Hari Krishna members had been bugging the vikings for donations before the coins were buried at the airport site.

What an incredibly offensive comment!!! I was going to share this post with a number of friends in the ancient coin community, but decided against it when I read the entire post.

But Hare Krishnas do sometimes solicit donations at airports. Or did.
Bugging is subjective.

This could be a great loss for the ancient coin community.
