    token or what ?

    Thanks, it could be and I admit that when I wrote contemporary imitation I was meaning contemporary forgery, however, due to the gothic style of the legends and the colour of the flan make me think that it couldn't be accepted at the time No, we don't have. In Italy, there is completely different legislation on m.d. finds etc.. and a tool like the PAS would be quite useless. I think that an equivalent of PAS can't be found in any other country.

    token or what ?

    Hi all! On an Italian forum, a member posted the images of this object. Clearly, it is not an authentic groat but anyway it looks old, do you know what is it? I thought that it could be a contemporary imitation or a token (or jeton)

    Ribe – Northumbria- a connection?

    In the viking coin the symbol made up of three triangles is the so called "Valknut" which is sometimes associated with Odin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valknut

    Edward I penny?

    Hi Dave and welcome! These pence can be very difficult to identify properly, especially the first times... looking at your images I would say: London mint, class 10cf2 Matteo
