After 3 months without swinging a coil it was good to be back with the lads again, Ray, Ian & Gavin. Saturday saw us visit another one of Ray's succesful farms and turned up trumps again!
Had this nice lizzy sixpence, but with a difference. It wasnt til I got home and looked under the glass I could see looks as if it was overstamped. The only comparison I could find was the following link on Timeline.
http://time-lines.co.uk/rare-overdate-elizabeth-i-tower-mint-1591-0-sixpence-009354-24170-0.html
When you see the words rare and scarce you tend to take a bit more notice :-)
Anyone come across simular?

Well if its been redated, the date behind it can only be 1590 , 91 or 92   as they correspond to the hand mintmark. And looking at the shape of the 'number ' behind the stamp it could only be 1590
