I desperately want to clean this coin - but I DAREN'T!!!
« on: August 07, 2017, 12:57:17 AM »
I didn't go to a Club Dig today because I've spent a fortune on car repairs recently and because the good permission I had last year which threw up a few hammereds including a gold escudo, is back available again for a very limited period.

I didn't expect to find much because I really did beast it last yer while I was able, but last week, first time on it, I found a Lizzie half groat.

Today  -  I found this...

I've checked the www and having seen what I've seen I dare not clean it despite the temptation.

Cannae believe it!!  It's incredible ...  It's the size of a sixpence and the picture does not do it justice.

Info from Baldwin's Auction site, shown for info!

G2+ does it again ...

Bob.

Yes, correct.  Every time I put the forward slash for the 'shilling' symbol on the photo, it changed it to a colon - dunno why, but well spotted!
