Hammered for ID please

Post by Zyrbalax » Wed Apr 17, 2019 6:38 pm

Today I went over part of the disturbed area in my usual pasture permission near Bristol for the third time. I’ve been over it once with the standard coil, auto sensitivity, and found two hammies; then again in the other direction using the 13” Detech Ultimate coil and manual sensitivity on c. 17, found another one. Today was using the 8x6” SEF coil, manual sensitivity all the way up to 20. Chatty yes, but just listening for any of those dulcet mid tones.

And here’s the result, another hammie with 3/4 of the area still to cover.

Not in great shape but I’m hoping there’s enough detail to ID the ruler and denomination.

Obverse shows a cheeky chappy with puckered lips, looks like a triple annulet on his shoulder, slightly lopsided crown (a drinker perhaps?!), in a ring of pellets. I can’t make out any of the legend unfortunately.

Reverse shows a long cross (I think), three pellets in each quadrant, could be a rose in the centre of the cross, and possibly a + starting the legend?

I am thinking possibly another Edward IV battered Penny but as always happy to be corrected!

Many thanks

It's a York penny & could well be Edward IV. Apart from that, there's nothing doing.

Thanks A, that’s great - it is a bit lacking in identifiable features!
