I think they are genuine - but I'm not really sure what to make of the seller. I've seen some of his auctions and there is no way some of the coins have been found "near the thames". While these look OK some of his other coins look a bit off - on saying that there have been some very rare tokens with what looks like water corrosion type damage.

I'm not going to buy anything of his until I get a better feel for what is going on. It is quite likely, as previously said, that he is selling suff for others - maybe just too lazy to change the listing info - maybe he thinks it might be a good selling feature (though most would be unfazed by that).

It's just a fact of life that old silver pulled out of the Thames just sounds more appealing than old silver pulled out of the River Daugava.

ALLOT, trust me. It's not that unusual to find small hoards of coins which would of once been money pouches accidentally dropped into the river. I've never walked a stretch of the foreshore without finding at least one coin of some sort; mainly old pennies, H'pennies etc.
You name an object and there will be one in the Thames; I heard from my Archeological society that there's even a German V2 rocket at the bottom of the Thames!

Could this be the same seller with a new name?

these were genuine Lithuanian coins - half-groats of Sigismund the Old 1512,1513,1510, half-groat of Sigismund August 1556 and undated half-groat of Alexander Jagiellon(last years of 15 century). Their mintage was in millions, so the coins arent expensive - probably 10 usd each....

well @giedrius/gdrs, I'm glad that you are here on CCF--as you may know we see old Polish/Latvian/Lithuanian coins pretty often here.
