I found this with my Nox on Field 2. It’s not silver, but I was wondering on an approximate age...I am thinking perhaps Edwardian?
Thanks in advance,

I suspect it’s a lot older than you think. There's no ridge at the bottom and it looks like it had a separate top so it could be as early as 17th century but might be 18th. Good find
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

That's interesting Cath...
I've had a look through the link kindly posted by Easylife, but I can't see an exact match; the top being missing doesn't help either.
Will have another look through when I get more time, but it looks like one for the FLO when mine is back in business....

I f this was a sweep I'd have a fiver on early to mid 19th century.
