Nice hammered, ID anyone?
« on: December 31, 2019, 07:39:17 PM »
Well 2019 has been a bit of a slog from a detecting point of view. Not many nice finds to speak of but today I unexpectedly pulled this lovely little thing out of the ground.

I think it is a Charles I 40 pence but I don't see it in Spinks. It is Scottish I assume since it has the thistle on the back.

Any thoughts? Date?

Also, no idea if my pics will load. We shall see!

That’s a lovely Charles 40p. Scottish circa 1621 to 1641 ish. Well done.

Thanks for the ID guys. Really pleased with the condition of this one. Can't have been in circulation for long before it was dropped.

I have spent most of the last 6 months digging up shotties and ring pulls so nice to get something decent to close out 2019!

Here is to a productive and interesting 2020 for everyone.

Great find Muddy, cheers for posting.

You need one of these:

The Scottish coins book, it’s in there. These copies seem a bit pricey though... GL
