Hi guys found this beauty? Anyone recognise this handsome fellow. Found in an area where roman coins have come up. He is about 20 mm across

We have a couple of very good researchers for this type of thing, so hopefully they will be on later to look
It does look in good condition too
Lovely find :thumbsup:

What a lovely little find :thumbsup:

Initial impressions are that the bust doesn't shout Roman but who knows? It's incredibly crisp, too.

Might be fairly modern (although why 100- 200 ish year old stuff is labelled modern is difficult for me to get my head round) but I would be grinning from ear to ear if I found it :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
