Hi all. Can any of you geniuses on here give me a spink number / id on this lizzie please. I'm told either a spink 2561 or 2562A . And also what would this coin grade as please. There's a big jump between spinks F & VF. The reaction ive had is better than a VF but thoughts welcome please.. Found on pasture With gm4wd. Thanks sj

As allectus has said a scale is important when dealing with coins
Just a bit of effort on your part to repay the effort the ID'ers put in on our free resource
There is even a free downloadable and printable scale on this forum for you to use

Next time with a scale please
When you are right no one remembers; when you are wrong no one forgets

Great detail in it, very nice condition, a very nice find.
I'm curious as well, would this coin be classed as fine or very fine?

Lovely coin. ::g

In terms of detail it looks to have been at least VF for the issue and possibly higher. It could just be the very nice photo but the surface looks a little bright and 'different'. Ground conditions can affect coins in many ways but for a coin this nice I'd reserve judgement until I knew a little more about it's finding and subsequent treatment, perhaps even until I'd actually seen and handled it. :D

Iโ€™m in agreement here, if I hadnโ€™t been told it was dug up, but bought I would almost have been susspisous as to itโ€™s authenticity.
It really is amazing how kind the soil can be to coins over such along period.
If your selling it or other coins I would air on the side of caution when grading coin because everyoneโ€™s take on condition is very different.
My opinion would be +vf
Well found.
2019 hammies. = 14 (including quarters, halves and broken)
Saxon = 0
Celtic. = 1
Silver denarius = 1
Gold Roman = 0
Gold ring. = 0

Hi all. Thanks again for all comments. And guarantee its 100% authenticity as it was only dug up this week in a field by myself thats never been touched. Ive never sold a coin as yet, something to hand down to my kids , but not if they dont start showing interest soon .lol. ๐Ÿ˜‚ so not for sale just yet but never say never.. thanks all.. sj
