    Wonderful example.

    Thames Hammered River Find

    Wonderful finds and context!

    Edward III penny of York - cross in quatrefoil

    An interesting example! My thought is it's a continuation from the engraving of the die and not a deliberate element of the design, the portrait is definitely Edward III. I've seen similar ones before, e.g. the below.

    Hammered Coins for Sale

    I've just uploaded a new list to my website should it be of interest to anyone here. Plenty of silver hammered coins and a smattering of milled. http://historiccoinage.com/newadditions.php

    This was originally £1,999 when I posted, so looks like the decimal point has been corrected now.

    token or what ?

    True. Maybe it's the light and metal that makes it look porous then.

    Looking for coins and...? 😥 One way to clean them.

    token or what ?

    It looks to be an imitation of a Henry VII halfgroat (depending on diameter). I'd not think it's contemporary, it looks somewhat soapy which makes me think it's been cast and deliberately 'aged' as I see this a lot with the Westair pieces people modify before listing on online auction sites.

    Hammy ID

    Agreed. Likely a Pinecone-Mascle issue penny (most common after Annulet issue, I believe, and yours isn't an Annulet).

    Ah. Mr Thomas/Michael Millard/Hibbs... Have a look here where Tony describes him as ‘An Alleged Miscreant of the 21st Century’ and I can think of at least another dozen places he's listed including Robert Matthew's site here.
