Mentioned this coin when Cath did her spread sheet of coinage, which was superb. :clapping:
Found by my detecting friend couple of weeks ago.
Looking in the book, could be a Durham House variety of an Edward VI Shilling.
Legends are quite worn, although the shield and portrait are better.

Thanks for the confirmation, Tony, :clapping:
Something was confusing us about this coin when looking it up, although can`t remember what it was.
Also read about some dodgy practices, over mintage etc, here and at Bristol.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Oh wow thats a stunner! I'd be putting that top of my annual finds list if I'd found it! :Star:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
