If we fail to reach £3.3 million by 17 April 2010, the treasure will be returned to the finder and the landowner and could end up being sold on the open market.
...some of the smallest fragments are valued at just £20. Each of us could save one such piece. Together we can save it all.
Should the money be raised, the Art Fund plans for the hoard to go on display at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, Stoke.
