    Hello Tim, He could still ask if a museum would like to purchase it using lottery and heritage grants. Ultimately it is his decision..He might just like to keep it in his own collection. But if he decided to sell the landowner could take him to court for some portion of the value as it was found on his land. The norm been 60/40 for old valuable items that are not treasure trove in the finders favour.
