I am hoping that someone will give me some pointers!
I found this coin yesterday (bent in to a love token?) and think it's an Edward VI shilling with a Tun mark which would make it 1551-1553 I believe - is there a mark that tells where it was minted? I'm trying to learn and would appreciate some help! Thanks all!

Lots of those large Tudor coins are scratched/defaced/tampered with thanks to petty, powerless Catholics. :lol: :lol:

No surrender!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Many thanks Allectus!
So on the obverse, is the tun between the X of Rex and the E of Edward?

You mean the ones that were punished because a fat, feckless king wanted to get under the skirts of a string of women?

Probably. No idea why that might upset anyone :roll:

Lucky thing - most of us have a big hole in our collections where an Edward VI should be. Well found :thumbsup:
