POST MEDIEVAL COIN

Post medieval silver hammered coin. The coin is a penny of Henry VIII (1509 -1547), second coinage. The coin has either broken or been crudely cut. It is more likely to be broken as it is not as precisely cut as a 'cut halfpenny' would be. See Spink (2001:213, reference number 2349) for a similar coin.
