Can anyone help with this broken hammered please, has some missing chunks and some nefarious medieval scoundrel has shaved off most of the edges!

I am thinking Edward IV as that's the closest I can find, and I am thinking London, but I await someone coming along and correcting me.

Thanks in advance.

I struggle with hammered coins even when everything's present, but Edward IV seems a decent shout :thumbsup:

York mint.

With the clipping on this one I am amazed that I didn't find the bloke that tried to spend it buried next to it, so much has been cut off that even the most illiterate medieval peasant would have spotted it!
