Your not wrong there Al. Itís a smasher, best Iíve seen.
2 questions, what is it ? & whatís going on with the date ?

The date looks like 169+. Did they only have one dye to cover the whole decade ? Wired or what !

I love finding these. I've got one area of a field on a permission that only produces 17th century coinage - most of it halfpennies and farthings of William and William and Mary. Much better than the later Georgies (although I like finding cartwheels too :) ).

Nice example :)
