Hooray! Finally have something to post....

Can someone help with this lizzie groat please, looks to me to be one of the ones with the shield from the half groat punches.

Photos below and also a photo of the page in my 2019 copy of spinks, I think it's a 2551A.

Please feel free to correct me if I'm miles out, I'm not an expert.

Thanks for looking.

Cool, thanks for that I see it now, I never know where to look on these!

It's just before the name on the obverse and immediately to the right of the initial mark on the reverse. In other words, a fraction to the right of the top :thumbsup:

Well done on finding your coin, as i have just learned something new.
Did not know what a Martlet was or even the position of mintmarks, not being a Roman coin.
Just found an interesting link, which shows variations.

Nice coin! :Star:

Would very pleased with that one. She might be a bit worn but she’s such a nice chunky coin that O wouldn’t care :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Might be worn but the first complete hammered I have found in a good while, the first Lizzie for me ever, and the first hammered coin with the nox.

I'm in a good mood.

Also had a spindle whorl, what might be a jetton but might be too crusty to tell, a nice bag seal, and a general service button that actually has some detail left, the soil at this farm kills them normally, this one must have been hiding in a good bit, got rained on a tiny bit but all in all it was a good day, and I even got to come home to a brisket that I had in the slow cooker cooking gently in red wine from 5am, (I plug my slow cooker into a timer, I don't get up at 5am to do it!)

You will also find the mint marks at the beginning of each monarch in the Spinks book. Your link is good but some marks are the wrong way around.

I found those after your post, I hadn't noticed those before, I tend to find the monarch and skip straight to silver, I don't find gold coins so hadn't noticed all the extra info at the beginning of each section!

Thanks for the above info.
Don`t actually own a Spinks and have only ever found one Hammered which came with the date on it.
Always receptive to info.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

I find that there is a lot of good back ground information at the start of each section in addition to the mingt marks, so if its a monarch that you have not looked at much previously its always worth a read.

I admit that when providing information on finds to a landowner that there has been more than one instance where I have copied the Spinks information.

Good find, always love to see a hammered, and I have a soft spot for a Lizzie.
Well found and well saved. :thumbsup:
