Well done ACE, the first is allways the hardest, they will come fast and furious now, it took me 9 months to find my first and that was going out 3-4 times a week, now I know what to listen for, and they are still bloody hard to find  Grin

I think you might be right there Phil, Queen Mary hasn't got the inner circle on her pennies and Elizabeth I has a date which I can't see on this coin, so I am going to stick my head out and also go for Edward VI Penny.

Come on Peter put us out of our misery.

I agree, Elizabeth I. Looks to have two pellets behind the bust so it's a halfgroat.

Thanks guys, i'm chuffed as punch with it  Grin Grin.

After your I.D. i can clearly see now with an eyeglass, 2 pellets to the right, and clearly see the shoulders of Elizabeth I.

At first i opted myself for an Edward VI Penny, but when Bobkoi mentioned Elizabeth I, then Peter, i found some good pics on line, which i was able to match up the pattern on shoulders etc.

Thanks again all, and nice to have you back on line Pete  Wink

peter does it not have 3 pelets on it .
1758 lizzy threepence Huh?? or the halfgroat .
thing with lizzy , people hated her so they rubbed her face out plus the monyers shallowed the die prior to striking i think too.
fantastic to get off the marks with a lizzy to say no more  my first was a lizzy half groat which was like a pull tab smooth but edward bearsley i.d 2 pellets and confirmed it.
i have managed around 30 since in 2.5 years so hope you can do similar .
