I managed a few hours out yesterday, dodging the rain. The barley was off and the stubble was tough. I found a few bits, but I’ll post them up later.
I found this Edward penny, and think it maybe a Canterbury, cross pattee initial mark and maybe a class 10cf2.
Any confirmation or correction welcome

Nice to get a hammered on your first post harvest session. Imagine how much more us there once the stubble is gone :Party:

The stubble is only about 3" long in places and is a killer to swings through. I'd forgotten just how much I hate stubble. The wheat will be off in another 10 days, so more stubble fields to go at :shock: I shouldn't moan really.

Yep, the initial excitement of getting back onto a field is soon dispelled by stubborn stubble :D

I'm not good with Edward pennies but I'd agree class 10 Canterbury. No idea on the sub class though.

I'm not very good at ID'ing Hammered coins, actually any coins for that matter. I did note the very slim 'Y' and what looked like a huge 'W' in Edward - hence the Class 10 guess - happy that you concur with that :thumbsup: :)

Edwards are a mystery to me too, Andi - all these different crown shapes etc are a nightmare :thumbdown: The diagnostic I find most useful is how the name is rendered (ED/EDW/EDWA/EDWR/EDWAR/EDWARD) and after that I leave it to the experts like Allectus to fine tune it :lol:
