Before creating an ID request please note you must:
1. include at least 2 photos of the item, both sides of a coin, or two angles of other items.
2. Include a ruler or other form of scale that clearly displays the scale in cm or inches. A coin or written dimensions is not acceptable.
Further information will also help, full guidance is below:
H - Have at least two good sized clear photos.
A - About your detecting day, type of land, depth found.
M - Measure items by doing the pics next to a scale or ruler.
M - Machine used and settings are interesting to other users.
Y - You will always get a better ID if you supply more information.

Could fairly easily see the 1811 date and shield, and as roughly the size of a penny took it to be one and did not pay it much attention at the time as the coin was in poor condition,especially the reverse.
But eventually got around to looking at it some time after and soon found out that firstly it was the wrong size for a George III 1811 penny (the scale in photo is inches but is about 29 millimetres), and secondly the design was wrong for a George III English penny.
I can make out some of the text but not enough to get an ID (not putting what I think text is in case wrong and might confuse people). It has been suggested it might be German or from that general area but I do not know if this is correct.
Any help very much appreciated.
