A silver post-medieval threehalfpence or penny of Elizabeth I (1558-1603), possibly long cross initial mark, minted at the Tower of London, possibly 1581 (North 2000 or 2001). The coin has been roughly pierced from the reverse to the obverse.
The puncture does not align with the top or bottom of the design of either the obverse or reverse, so the coin does not appear to have been modified into an object, e.g. jewellery, therefore does not constitute potential treasure under the Treasure Act 1996 .
