Noble Friends, Especially Vikings and Fellow Scots:

The National Museums of Scotland, with their main galleries in 
Edinburgh, has been awarded tentative ownership of the Galloway Viking 
Treasure hoard. That is, if the National Museums can come up with nearly 
£2 million. This 2014 treasure find, discovered by a metal detectorist, 
includes a number of really significant pieces which can be seen at:

story had some additional photographs:

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge
