Hi all these were found on pasture and I have not seen one of these before and the other looks hard to ID. But know doubt I could be proven wrong. So any help would be much appreciated.

Just to add further information to the second coin which is a very unusual find in England. The coin fits into a series of Anonymous Quadrantes, from the time of Domitian to Antoninus Pius, Copper Quadrans, 3.55g., Rome mint The patina most certainly enhances this lovely little coin.
