I had another bit of a swing on the horse field but nothing too great came up. So I wandered back along a fence line swinging under it and got a nice banging sweet 15 on the Nox, and this tiny 13mm Charles I penny emerged from about 4". A first for me and one off my wish list. :Party:

Very easily lost, I dropped it twice. Same size as an Eddy I farthing.

I did hear that Charles 1st coins were sometimes worn to show support for the king - hence the hole. Anyone know that to be the case?
