    James 1st half crown

    Good afternoon, I would like some help on this half crown I purchased. I know it has obverse scratches but I still like it so no insults please. I am trying to identify it according to the newest Spink and believe it to be the second coinage it cannot be 2667 because it has no plume . It has QVAE DEVSand the ground line . I did wonder if the mintmark was a scallop rather than the thistle ..... or perhaps its 2666 but the mint mark is wrong I only dabble in a few hammered so I would be grateful for your help it was a Bonfire night present to myself I realise it is a touch piece and likely there has been solder removed, I now see that now I have taken a closer look. It was not clear because the strike has rotated 80 degrees to the left. Perhaps I will send it back
