Unique ID: SWYOR-686546

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

A copper alloy hammered coin probably dating to the Post Medieval period, about AD 1597-1663; probably 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 with just traces of a thistle on the reverse. Dimensions: diameter 19.4mm, weight 1.64g.
