There I was on my new permission, a small field with a ruinous house dating back to 1877. Over three days using my dependable AT Max, I found 18 various pre WWII copper coins, 3 silver sixpence’s and a child’s toy metal horse ! Not a bad haul and good fun. Then a sketchy ‘foil’ signal (which I almost didn’t dig ……..) and out pops this little beauty ! A tiny Elizabeth I penny ? Unable to see a date or mint ? Circa 1558 - 1603? Anyone confirm ?

Many thanks
DL

Welcome to the forum Doug :thumbsup: See you’ve already had your first ID - your first of many I hope :D

Always nice to find a Lizzie, although most of us would prefer them all to be in better shape. I guess though that when we do find a beauty we do appreciate it more. I’m still waiting for a really good one :lol:
chill…karma will fix it

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
