York mint ? hammie for ID 14th Feb 2020

Post by stubble hunter »

With the weekend threatening to be a wash out I went out with a few club members today on a beaten down wheat stubble field.

I blanked but one of my mates came up with this one which appears to be a York mint ? I'm going for a Henry VI penny but... i have been wrong so many times before... so I'm relying on the experts here! :D

It looks like this had been in a fire so a small dose of electrolysis. May give it a tad more.

My mate was using his HF 9" coil Deus on the same settings as me. Hot prog on 29khz
Cheers!

The quatrefoil is interesting, as it shows the scriber marks made by the die sinker to mark the centre of the coin.
