Durham Hammy with Crozier

Can any of our MDF learned friends please assist with any more information with this silver hammered shown above ?
My research so far suggests Edward 11 or 111, Durham mint with the long cross left hand crozier. Not much information on the web about this and can only find an example of a right hand crozier.

This was one of two found with a Garrett 300i about four inches deep on a stubble field.

Thank you

It's an Edward II/Richard de Kellawe penny, possibly class 11. Need a much better pic though! x;
