Before creating an ID request please note you must:
1. include at least 2 photos of the item, both sides of a coin, or two angles of other items.
2. Include a ruler or other form of scale that clearly displays the scale in cm or inches. A coin or written dimensions is not acceptable.
Further information will also help, full guidance is below:
H - Have at least two good sized clear photos.
A - About your detecting day, type of land, depth found.
M - Measure items by doing the pics next to a scale or ruler.
M - Machine used and settings are interesting to other users.
Y - You will always get a better ID if you supply more information.
Hopefully I will get to the bottom of this, I do love a mystery, thoughts from a Facebook group,,,,,
Certainly purports to be an Irish, a single lined triangle, possibly a sub class, all classes are for Dublin with two moneyers Richard
and David, now the anomalies, bust doesn't appear to have neck lines or shoulders, the shape of the S (HENRICV(S) can vary in a few cases but is outside the three known varients, the hand holding the Septre is a bit weird ( long fingers) and REX is not really there, appears another letter has been inserted after X? the lettering on the reverse quarter is not as should be for mint or either moneyer as
far as I can see. Maybe a continental imitation ? or a local forgery? , purposeful break? , who knows. All in all my take reading H3, a very nice interesting piece.
