Hi all.
I went out with Pete today on a new 13 acre permission. Not much came up really.
This little silver hammered did though. I think it’s not an English coin, and could be Spanish. Filipe 3rd 2 reales maybe
As it’s a new permission, I’d like to give the land owner as much detail as I can.
Thanks for any help identifying this.

Think you may be right.
Lots of different versions on the Numista site.
Different from the usual hammered.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Certainly looks interesting.

No idea what it is, but agree its foreign rather then English.

I think the top picture is upside down.
If this is Spanish Reales, I wonder how it turned up in Broadway?

That's different, hope you get an ID on, almost looks like a jetton at quick glance but sure its not, well done on the permission :thumbsup:

Hope you find some more goodies on there
