Inspired by Paint and easylife I thought I would put this out there for us all to share a picture of the coin that broke our hammered virginity! Much like losing your real virginity you will always remember the experience and the feeling of...”Wow, I’ve done it!” :D

Here is mine, still not 100% sure what it is but I think it’s an Edward l penny.

I remember my first hammered. As for the other bit; sex is like strawberries and BMW's - highly overrated :lol:

Here's mine, found back in Nov 2015, a cold and wet day, mud sticking to me like you know what to a blanket, hard going in the field, I thought it was a button, didn't properly clean it until I got home, had a nice surprise
A Class 15c Bury St Edmunds Edward II Penny

Mine was a Lizzie I Sixpence, the bust had vanished but the reverse isn't too bad.

Do you think so? I tried researching it but gave up in the end as my eyes hurt from looking at my coin then comparing it to the ones on my iPad screen! Got that it was an Edward and Canterbury mint but then couldn’t get any further.

It could be Eddy I, but a later one? :?

Thank you very much! I did wonder whether it was an Edward I or II, if only they’d put the date on them it would be so much easier! :D
