I saw the hoard in Washington DC at the National Geographic museum.  Quite impressive.  The craftsmanship was incredible, especially for the tools they had at the time.The exhibit was very well done.  Great video's and they had little tablet PC's that you could click on for more information.  Also displayed a rotatable/zoomable 3D image of the object being displayed.  The "mystery" object was fun to look at.  No one has any idea what it is or what it does, but the craftsmanship was awesome. thought it was quite interesting that whoever took the hoard, just pillaged the gold.  They basically stripped the gold off and tossed the rest.I also love the two guys who found the hoard.  Two, very "salt of the earth" guys (farmer/owner and a guy who had a metal detector).-Patrick
