I had a few hours out earlier today which seemed to consist mostly of findings canslaw and lead..Up to the last few minutes of the session, the hightlights were two rather toasted halfpennies, date unknown...

While trudging back to the car, I got a nice 13 signal, which I half guessed as more foil or shredded aluminium so was really pleased when this little hammered turned up at a depth of about four inches..Its not in brilliant condition by still very welcome.

I have had a look through my copy of Spinks, consulted the tea leaves and generally took a stab in the dark but recon it may be a Charles I penny, part of the Nicholas Briot coinage 1631-39...

I am probably way off, so would very much appreciate it if someone could confirm or correct me..
