Had a few hours out yesterday on a local permission, weather good working temperature, on pasture very little give in the ground.
Only digging deeper targets, therefore taking out deeper plugs in the hope of fiming in again, rather than shallow turfs which are easily pulled out by stock.

Amongst the usual buttons and scrubbed Georgies, had a couple of poor copper alloy coins ?
The first I think is a Scottish turner or bodle of Charles 2nd ( two pence )
The other I am wondering if it is a jetton?
Having never found one before I am not too sure, it's in pretty poor nick, the flip side being totally scrubbed.

Any help with ID on these would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
Reiver.

Unsure of the 2nd item.
Two good finds.

The second coin is a Turner. A Scottish Charles II 17th century coin - a nice one :Star:

Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
