.... which enables the user to punch the letters one can definitely make out on a GB hammered coin legend the same way a lot of sites do for Roman coins in order to narrow down what the coin may be?
I still haven't found a user friendly "legend reader" for British coins - perhaps there isn't one.... #gapinthemarket?!

There is a bloke on this forum....name slips my mind for the moment, who could write a book on the subject. Al..., no it’s gone again. Anyway, a book for laymen (or women) giving tips and websites, a few nice illustrations perhaps, that could fill that gap in the market and make a few bob to boot.

If only I could remember his name :-/

I think you would be better off with copies of Englands Striking History and Spink, you will soon get to recognise the different types of coin especially if you follow up on the Id's Allectus makes on here ::g

One problem with working out the legends is deciphering out the ligated letters on late Anglo-Saxon and early medieval British coins - Romans used the Roman lettering that we are more familiar with!

He is a little bit good though, but don’t tell him.

Second stillburnings recommendations.
There’s also north books. They are really good, just a bit dear.
