Not 100% sure but about the right size...

Morning All,
I'm more showing this off as I have never found an Elizabeth I coin in this condition; I normally clean hammered coins within an inch of their lives they come out shinier than when they were first minted!!!

Not this one I am not touching it - I like it as is - the detail is beautiful.

All the Best
Alexander

it was taken on top of my Gyr Falcon obviously...! :D I have just discovered that photos come out quite well with some nice natural light coming from the window!

Blimey, Alexander, your roll continues unabated! :thumbsup:

I'd agree with threepence, mm Greek cross. A cracking little coin

That is a belting coin, Alexander, really crisp detail.
I have a soft spot for a Lizzie as it was my first hammered coin.
Well found and well saved :thumbsup:

Just shows you how nice those coins were when they aren’t worn to nothing or bent and broken. A real beauty :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
