distressed hammered for id please

Found yesterday at about 3" deep on rotted stubble with the equinox 800 using modified field 1, it was the first diggable signal of the day and for those of you who like numbers it was a solid 10, it was the only item worth a mention after a 3 hour stint.
I know i should be able to identify hammereds myself after many years detecting but it is a skill that
still eludes me.

Allectus will give you the correct answer, but I'm going to have a stab at Henry VI half groat, Canterbury mint.

Perhaps you should put it in a saucer of hot sweet tea. That'll calm it down. =))
