Saxon? Perhaps....

Hello,
Would greatly appreciate your help with this one.
Suspiciously Saxon, but that would be rare in the Highlands. Viking?

Thanks everyone for the informative and motivational comments.
Was wondering if I would hit ZERO hammies by the end of the year, but nice to be proven wrong.
The site is an interesting one. Sandy soil, just a couple of hundred metres from the shoreline. Very little junk, but enough interesting stuff to keep going back. My first signal on this field was a John penny a year or two ago, since then I have had a good condition gun money shilling, and now this half.
I’ll head back again later and see what else comes up.
The ‘sifter’ program is a keeper, very nice work.
Thanks again,

Paul.
