The only two decent finds amongst a load of rubbish was a Bovril token to commemorate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897
The words on the token read Souvenir of the Diamond Jubilee 1897 on one side on the reverse it says The greatest success of the longest reign
The other find was a Henry 111 cut half minted in Canterbury the moneyer being Nichole

Very nice cut half indeed :thumbsup:

Amazing with the Bovril token, even back then the companies were jumping on anything to advertise their wares

Both great finds. Nice to see a penny with a horizontal cut. They look really cool that way :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
