I had a couple of hours of sweating on the stubble this evening and whilst it was not very productive in terms of the number of finds (only half a dozen diggable signals) a hammered penny was amongst the few so I'm not complaining
I've found two Scottish hammered at the farm before, so I suppose it shouldn't be a surprise to find a Berwick Upon Tweed mint penny there, but it was! Not a mint I've ever found before.
Is it possible to tell if this is Edward I or II? All I can find is that the Berwick coins don't fit the classification system because of locally made dies

It's had the slightest of dings on the edge from machinery (visible at 5 o'clock on the reverse pic) over the years, but overall it's in very nice nick.
This is a field that I ran out of time on last year, so it's nice to see that the remainder still has promise. Anything's a bonus on rock hard soil in stubble
