I've now got pretty good at IDing coins, but as for Eddie pennies?, They all look the same to me, and if it's CIVITAS LONDON I struggle beyond that!

We have seen a big increase in the Finds ID requests and many of the coins are pretty common and easy to identify, so I would encourage everyone to consider doing the ID for themselves and then if they get stuck they can use the ID service. Its good fun and you may then end up helping others! ::g
Remember that if asking for an ID you must supply the correct information. The HAMMY CODE is simple to follow. Not supplying the basic information is disrespectful to those others who make the effort.If stuck out in the field and without a scale, post in Finds Stories and let us share your excitement, I LOVE l;. to see those clod shots, BUT don't ask for an ID until you get back home and have the time (and scale) to do a proper ID request, Liam :;@

Loads of Eddie penny ID info here https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/pages/edwardian ... s%20P1.htm

They are a mighty pain to tell apart though, particularly the overlap between Edward I and II.
