Very nice indeed.

Certainly puts my example and my 1653 shilling to shame, although the shilling does have the Commonwealh spelling error.

A recent detector find, in the process of finding out more (if there is any more!) Reputable dealer though

Have they tried to correct that H? It looks very weak. :huh:

I've been looking at this too and am wondering if it is a trace of a former die that hasn't been polished out. There are plenty of polishing marks which suggest it had a former life and some of the residual lines are wider than file marks being the same width as seen on the shield quartering, such as that by the harp.
