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.
I have just purchased an Equinox 800 and went out first time and discovered a coin on the third hole. Too badly corroded to see any inscription but I am sure someone out there will be able to give me a guide as to what I have found. It does have a milled edge and was not aware of pennies having a milled edge but maybe some did.
Rather fortunate in that I have my own hunting ground and as the name suggests I have a camping park. Been a Park since 1945 apparently but also there is some history to the village - so looking forward to what I discover in the months/years ahead.
Can you clean something up like this? Wary of using anything too harsh as I don’t want to make it worse.
I look forward to hearing from someone.

I’d agree with it being a Georgian Half penny, as I found one of the same size in the Exe estuary when I was a little lad.
I’d suggest a bit of soapy water and an old toothbrush might give ‘some’ detail. it’s surprising how effective a bit of soapy water is!
