And were undated and silver coins would be sixth issue anyway with that date on them. I had presumed that the crown referred to the mint mark (coronet) but this would only narrow the date to 1567-70 from the Tower mint, which would be back to third/fourth issue? It's all just too confusing, we definitely need some photos and a scale please. ::g

Glad you got the hang of adding photos as it can be tricky ::g

The only thing you missed was something to give an idea of the size of your coin - a modern coin or a ruler for example- in the photos. The other option is to measure it and tell us the size of it in the text. Good luck with the ID :D

Looks too small for a sixpence. Maybe three pence. Well done.

good day out today got a coin and tiny button the button was well deep just over 1 and a half foot came out in the last hand full almost gave up my mates getting hits just over two foot deep i'm guessing these old c scopes are good thanks dad for keeping ur old detector

I dont think people actually measure and tend to exaggerate when they first start out, a foot deep on a tiny button or a coin is very deep, try digging a 10 inch whole and you will be surprised how deep the whole is, yes its 10 inches :)) but its a very deep whole, from experience unless the button is huge you are not going to pick it up at a foot and half with a c scope cs660 or most machines, not saying you lying but simply got the depth wrong.
