...I was initially thinking Richard, but I don't think there are seven pellets to the crown (at first glance it seems as though there is, but I settled on five). You have the coin in hand and are best placed to count them mate ;-)

...the shape of the face and the beard are also larger pellets, more in style with the coins of John or Henry?

Looks like 5 mate your right but the richards NORMALLY have 7 so they could have 5   but I think its the crude bust so a late Richard or early john then goes down to this letter s being reversed looks normal trouble is its not a good bust will try get a better picture for you tomorrow mate lol its a funny one not straight forward
