This was on a pasture field that I believe used to have an old church building on it and they're assorted bits from the roof and windows.
Finally hit a couple of more interesting bits one of which was clearly a milled coin at about 6 inches down. I threw it in my pouch thinking it was a George Penny and carried on.
However upon getting home I realised the bust didnt look like George, it even looks a bit like he has a wreath on his head. It also looks to be a bit older than that too. The thing thats baffling me though is the reverse, I can't recall ever seeing one like it. No obvious sign of a date and I can't make out any text. Seems clear enough though that is m sure someone will know it instantly. See pics below...
I suspect that it is something super common that I just can't place because its worn too much, and I'm too dense to see it.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Clearly Britannia on the reverse surround by some kind of wreath or leaves.
There also seems to be some lettering on the front, I ca clearly see an S to the right behind the bust.
