Great hammered, well found. I’d agree with you that it’s a John voided short cross penny. Can’t quite pick it out from the few that are in the Spink catalogue though. You should send a couple of pics off to TT. Good luck...

Thanks for the reply.

I have a USB microscope in the post so hopefully get some clearer pics and get it sent to TT for a correct ID.

Again, super chuffed with my find. Took a few years to get it :)

You gotta put the time in to find these hammies. It would be good to see how your new pics turn out. GL
