Oak tree threepence friendly advice please

Just after a bit of advice on what's the best course of action regarding the the oak tree threepence I found I've been contacted by the museum and they've decided that it's not classed as treasure trove😃
So it will be split 50/50 between myself and the landowner and they are wanting me to sell it which I'm happy to do, just not sure how to go about it, I think ideally it should be returned America any advise would be welcome thanks.

    Get it slabbed and then consign it to a specialty dealer or an auction. Easiest path is to send it to Great Collections raw.

    I agree that there are advantages to having it graded and holdered by our host. Have you made an impromptu grade based on known examples? Good luck. Peace Roy

    @tynetraveller2000 is there a picture of it somewhere, I would like to see what it looks like. I love coins from this time.
