Hi,
I,m pretty sure this is an Elizabeth 1 sixpence, would be great to get a positive ID and some more info on it :) think it says "76" above the shield.
Thanks NL

I thought it looked more like a 'James' but I see the word 'Elizabeth' around the rim so I guess I was wrong  -  I don't think they did 'Trans' back then?   :angel: :angel:
