Well found that man. I can equal that, I painted a wall  Grin

Might be totally wrong but I think they were all minted in London. (Donít quote me on that ! )

Roland will tell you when he sees it. 👍

There were 2 mint marks. A Sun, placed in between the shields at the top. This was replaced with an Anchor when the striking went mechanical just before Cromwell died.
I can just make out the Sun symbol on yours. Before it was clipped it would have had the date on it.
Nice find.

Yup - all minted in London - none of these had a date on them - too small I suppose Smiley

Interestingly (for me I suppose!) one of the three hammereds I found in 2018 was also a commonwealth penny - my first in 12 years or so of detecting  - they're lovely coins Smiley It was also the first hammered I'd found in that field in 10 years of detecting there too.
