As a cut 5/8th!!

This popped up yesterday very shallow but a banging 24 on the Nox...

I believe it’s an extremely rare cut 5/8th Victorian six pence, or at least that’s what it will say on EBay! 😃😃

Had a very quiet 3 hours out yesterday, but found very little: three musket balls, three or four buttons, a pound coin and the six pence below.

I have no idea why it’s been cut, but the cut does look deliberate with a clean straight edge....

Will be out again Sunday on a club dig so hopefully have something a little older....

That has the look of having gone through a grass cutting machine.
Have a Pound coin or rather 66p coin that looks very similar and came off the local park as an eyes only while playing football.

Given it was very shallow; only just under the sod, I think you might be right...

Never found a sixpence like that but I have had a few chopped ol pound coins too.

Kind of sobering when you think of the force needed to chop a thick coin like that in half without a solid surface to cut against!
That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

Yar, I didnae no explain my meaning there, innit? If that's a deliberate cut it's in a strange place and I just wondered if the obverse might give a clue as to why :thumbsup:

I guess you mean if it chopped her head off? Like slitted her throat? :Thinking:
I reckon it's just random.
