Today was my first outing with my recently acquired Equinox 800 and I found my first hammered coin :D . Unfortunately, it has been heavily clipped so I'm not sure it will be possible to identify it. I've put a couple of photos up to see if anyone is able to shed any light onto its identification.
Thanks.

Hi Dave,

The above are very similar indeed but, the curved sides to crown strongly favour Richard III. ;)

Very well done on your first hammered, something which will stick in the memory as it does for all of us :thumbsup:

And for it to be a likely Richard III? Outstanding :D

Well done on your hammered coin :clapping:
Hopefully many more will lay under your coil when you are out, and has been proven, the ID's are something this forum can help with :thumbsup:
