Evening All,
Fairly sure its a Scots one but not sure who? Sorry for lack of scale; I like to use one for coins but suffice to say it looks pretty average hammered (half) penny size, Many thanks in advance and any knowledge much appreciated!
All the B
Alexander

Looks like an Alexander II short cross phase D - possibly a Spinks 5038 uncrowned head with sceptre.

As you know I’m not an expert but maybe a good starting point?

Lovely coin - very jealous!

Edit - this one?

The bust is facing the wrong way isn’t it? :Thinking:

To expand a little on the reply above, what might be confusing is the orientation of the coin in the images. This is the obverse, right way up:

The sceptre now appears on the left with the bust on the right



And similarly the reverse:
