The article is slightly wrong, it does not belong to the Queen!
it belongs to the land owner %50 and to the finder %50.
What happens is. you declare your treasure find to your local FLO then the museums decide if they want to buy it or not. If they want to buy it they get three independent valuators in to place a value on the find. Then they divide it by three and they then have a certain time in witch to collect the money from the Gov, well wishers and rich dudes! Then they pay the farmer half and the finder the other half.
I am the founder of the Pastfinders club and the Finds Liaison officer (FLO) visit us every 2nd meeting to collect possible treasure for study.
Like my gold 17th century Posy ring Inscribed "I love only my God" they decided not to buy it and gave it back to me.
