COIN

Unique ID: SWYOR-6321FC

Object type certainty: Probably
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A copper alloy illegible hammered probable coin, probably dating to the Post Medieval period, about 1597-1663: possibly a Scottish twopence, or 'turner' or 'bodle' of James VI (1567-1625), Charles I (1625-1649), or Charles II (1649-1685). However, it is only the size and form of the coin which suggests such an identification; it is illegible. Alternative identifications might be that of a Post Medieval token or jetton.

The object is 21.4mm in diameter, 1.3mm thick and weighs 2.66g.
