Hi Richard,

Like I said on the other thread, can you get a bigger/sharper/brighter picture. A better focused picture of the right half of the head side would be great.

I can't make out yet whether it's an Edward, Henry or Richard even  Shocked

a bit sharper but the coin is fuzzy in hand anyway rather squashed and worn soft.

Right - I think I've got it.

Can definitely see what looks like the bottom of ..ARDVS REX on the obverse.
.
Could be RICARDVS or EDWARDVS, but I believe it is most likely to be a third coinage halfpenny of Edward III, like this one:

http://www.ukdfd.co.uk/ukdfddata/showrecords.php?product=17292&cat=27

Richard - can you measure the maximum diameter in millimetres for me please? If it is 14-15 mm then it's a halfpenny. If it's larger I'll have to think again!

I can see R I C. I have fiddled with the image a bit to try and show the bust more clearly. See what you think Peter.

I can see what you mean Eric and Richard, but I think you are misreading it. This is what it looks like to me (font and size are not quite right but you can see the idea).

Halfpennies of Richard III read RICARD DI GRA REX, so the lettering we can see does not match. Halfpennies of Richard II read RICARD REX ANGL, again not a match. Halfpennies of Edward IV read EDWARD DI GRA REX or EDWARD DEI GRA REX.

The only possible match is Edward III, where the typical legend is EDWARDVS REX or EDWARDVS REX ANG.

Did you manage to measure the size?
