half a shilling? and worn and clipped penny ?

Post by looksold » Wed Sep 13, 2017 10:47 am

found these two the other night with alter on worked arable land. i think its a shilling (about 30mm) of elizabeth and i have looked for the rest of it because looks like agri machinery damage to me but to no avail.
penny probably too far gone far an id and pics not clear enough.
such a pity about the large coin, i have only found a couple this size in about 30 yrs.
