Can you ID this coin please?

Post by Dave252 » Thu Jan 10, 2019 12:58 pm

Hi All, Happy new year to you all. I went out last week to Brentwood and found this little lovely. I found with my Deus on a pasture field at about 4" deep. I use my Deus fast settings with ground balance set to tracking, disc 5.3 and sens 95. Its a bit banged up. I think it maybe a john short cross penny. but need someone who is in the know to confirm or not. Any information would be very much appreciated. Thank you. All the best.

Definitely Richard I class 2-4a due to the style of the lettering. If I was forced to bet, it would be 4a. ::g
