Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

An incomplete silver hammered coin, probably a penny given its general size. The obverse is barely legible, although it appears to show a left-facing bust with high-necked collar suggesting it is most likely an issue of Elizabeth (1558-1603). Obverse legend reads [...R]OSA.SINE[...]. The reverse shows the Tudor arms with a long cross fourchee through. Reverse legend reads [CIVI]/TAS/[.../...]. Die axis is 12 o'clock, weight is 0.19g, the longest incomplete section of diameter measures 12.39mm, thickness is 0.38mm.
