Found today in Dalmahoy
« on: November 18, 2018, 05:43:18 PM »
Hi

I found this today and was told it was Henry II or III voided longcross but another guy at the dig thought it might be rare as the bust is straight on and not sideways as usual?

Sorry mate but it’s just a normal Henry III voided long cross, but a lovely example.
Well done :)

Yeah it was just a wee bum steer in the field as someone initially mid identified it for him but as soon as I seen it I did let him know it was a Henry III VLC, and a spectacularly conditioned example at that!!
Oh look! another arsehole ;-) (people watching the professional beggars round central station)
