I recently posted my first hammered which was quickly ID'd by you know who. In truth I've had several 'maybes' prior to this and here are a couple. The silvered i'd dismissed but yesterday I did the foil test and it sure is silver and I'm leaning towards milled. The other crusty thing I dare not try and clean it's wafer thin and barely hanging on in this world.

Your first coin is probably a milled William III six pence, bent into a love token.
Not sure on the second coin?

Thank you, I recently had a William 3rd sixpence so was leaning this way too as they were of a similar size. :thumbsup:

Are the squares 10mm or 5mm? It could be a farthing of James I/ Charles I period which are 13-16.5mm approx., depending on type. Looks a bit like a 17th century farthing token, but they are around 16mm. Neither size seem to work for your coin though :Thinking:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Sorry they are 10mm squares, the crusty is in at around 16mm so you could be correct thank you. It'll be remaining in the unknowns pile I think!

You could actually get an ID off of that Boots, I can make out a few letters as it is. A very light clean with a fibre pen or composite pencil should reveal enough .
Maybe worth putting up some more pictures in a different light as it is :thumbsup:
