Is Cath psychic or is it coincidence that I found this today,perhaps we’ll never know.
Having read her interesting post on coin bending and the story of the monk in Durham made it all the more spookier as my Daughter’s at St Cuthberts college and this summer she exhumed her first burial at Lindisfarne.
Don’t worry she’s reading Archaeology so no Burke and Hare connections,although she did enjoy the experience.
Anyway,after all my drivel I’d be grateful for an ID,I’m guessing Edward 1,any takers?

Canterbury mint? Any chance of a pic of the other side of the obverse?

Not and less he unfolds it and then he'll be ducking from my death stares :rollinglaughing:

Thanks for all your replies,I’m not sure that I could risk Cath’s death stares,that said,it isn’t properly closed or evenly folded like the last one I found,it reminds me of of an open oyster,tempting but offering fatal consequences.
The first one I found I unbent,annealing it with a slightly disappointing outcome and telling off from the daughter so is it stick or untwist?

Untwist! It's because the fold is 'rounded' meaning it should straighten unlike a completely flat bent coin where the edge is not round but sharp/flat. But saying that, if you don't anneal it gently.... :thumbdown:
