Teen stumbles across rare old sixpence

When a teenage girl and her mum saw a shiny object while they were out walking in Peterborough, they initially thought it was a bottle top - or a twenty pence piece.

But then 13 year old Charlene Moles picked it up - and after a trip to her local museum she discovered it was a 16th century silver sixpence.
