Managed to get out for a few hours this morning whilst dodging the rain showers!

Need help identifying the hammered coin and also found what looks to be a small toy, possibly a knight/soldier. Looks old but any help of identifying the age would be great.

Thanks!  Smiley

I was going to say the toy was a Yeoman of the Guard, and could be but not wearing today’s uniform.
The coin is an Edward. No idea which one though.

Hi Val. Yeah the shape of the clothing matches a Yeoman but the pattern doesn't. Can't find anything on google  Huh

I thought the coin was an Edward too but again, I'm not sure which one either!

The coin also looks like it's been struck twice to form a cross over the kings face. Has anyone ever come across this before?

I saw a reference recently to the strike of another Edward coin that had a ‘ghost’ of the cross showing through to the other side.
Probono is probably the one to give answers if he sees it or Dale, he’s pretty good with hammered coins.

Interesting coin. It's a Henry V penny, York mint, with mullet and trefoil by crown and an annulet in one quarter of the reverse and also after 'TAS'. A variation of Spink 1788 or 1790.

The ghosting of the cross showing through on the obverse is not hugely unusual, but is quite striking when heavy.

Thanks for the ID Doc   Smiley

That's interesting on the ghosting. First time I've seen it on one of my hammered!
