Hi all,
Found this coin yesterday on stubble field in Suffolk. It's well worn but wondered if there's enough on it for ID. I've found English pennies on same field which seem to date around the 1740's onwards. Hope you can help.
Many thanks
Trevor

Well done.
Reckon some light brushing may enhance the detail.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Thanks Dave for that. Sometimes detail seems enhanced when a little soil remains, especially when photographing for this site, so it's always difficult to know what's best. I'll give the light brush a go. All the best.
