IMPORTANT Before Creating an ID Request, Please Follow the H.A.M.M.Y Code Below....
H - Have at least two good sized clear photos, this is Mandatory
A - About your detecting day, type of land, depth found.
M - Measure items by doing the pics next to a scale or ruler. this is Mandatory
M - Machine used? settings? interesting to other users.
Y - You will always get a better ID if you supply more information.
*PLEASE NOTE: Use of a modern coin or written dimensions no longer qualify as a "scale". We need a properly-defined measure - metric or good old-fashioned inches will do.

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 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.
