Well found. The Roman appears to be an Urbs Roma commemorative, issued AD 330-331

The first cut quarter appear to be a short cross, and the second is a Henry III voided long cross. Need better images for fuller IDs on the quarters.

How can I get better images on here? I used the scanner at 300dpi for the first images.
I now tried at 2400dpi which sized the images at 300 to 350kb each.
When I tried to send it took a couple of minutes trying and then failed.
Below this reply box it says Maximum attachment size allowed is 400kb x 50 per post. My images are within that so what am I doing wrong?

I've stopped using my scanner for images - never seems to have a good image. I use my phone or a digital camera. This obviously has too large a resolution. If you copy the image across to a PC, you can magnify it, so that only the coin /artifact fills the screen. I then use 'Screenhunter' which is free - although you could use 'PrintScreen' - as these both take an image at VGA or so resolution - which when saved as a jpeg is super tiny Smiley It sounds complicated but when it is set up it takes seconds to look at an image and then crop it and save it. I use this for all my eBay and forum images.

Well done with the images.

First one definitely a short cross, and the moneyer is Adam, but I can't see enough of the head side to narrow it down further for ruler and mint.
Second one Henry III as I said, moneyer Henri, again mint uncertain.

No problem - I spend a lot of time cropping images for work, for eBay, for talks, so time (and size) is always of the essence Smiley - glad it worked for you.

In over 20 years of detecting I had found a lot of complete pennies and a few halves but only 1 cut quarter.
Then, like buses, two came along at once!

I'm still waiting for my first cut half or quarter - or indeed my first short cross or even voided long cross - although I'm sure when I find the first one, they'll start popping up - it took me ages to find my first trade token and now I find quite a lot (mainly Bristol ones).
