    Elizabeth I Shilling martlet?

    Hello to everyone! Now I have received an elizabethan Shilling. The seller cataloged it as 1601-2, Spink 2584. I'm doing my homework and I think this is not correct; the observe reads ELIZABETH with all the letters, and since it reads too ET instead of Z I believe that it is a 2nd issue (1560-1, Spink 2555). The zone of the mintmark is somewhat erased and I must train my eye, but I think it's compatible with the martlet (I think I can see the tail of the bird). Am I correct? My coin reads AN'.FR'.ET'.HI'.REGINA and in other coins and books the legend is ANG and HIB , I don't know if this is a common variation. At the moment I have Spink's Coins of England, 37th ed. Best regards!
