:pulling hair out: Please could anybody help me with an identification on this little (and I mean little) blighted.
This little silver hammered turned up this afternoon, heavily clipped I suspect and pierced. I hope there is enough to go on for one of you wizards to identify it.
After pawing over the pages of Spink my best guess is Richard 111? But probably just showing my ignorance.
Please can anyone help.

That isn’t clipped, it’s probably a farthing but it’s a weird shape so might be a half. Never seen one of those pierced before. Great find :thumbsup:

Thanks you so much for the I.D. that's brilliant. I was right on one count, I was showing my ignorance. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the help, it's tiny, took me five minutes to find it in the spoil once out of the hole. :thumbsup:
