Love finding short cross pennies and a John is always a very welcome sight - well done :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Great stuff :thumbsup:

It's a constant source of annoyance for me that John is one of the missing monarchs on my list. But I suppose I've got more chance of finding one of his coins than I have of king Nigel :lol:
