Featured here is the last item from a group of three, which came in from Paul Marland. It’s a hammered coinage shilling of Elizabeth I. Lots of the lower denomination of Elizabeth I are unearthed by detectorists but shillings turn up much less frequently. The mint mark isn’t altogether clear but it is either a tun or a woolpack, which means this coin is an example of the sixth issue (1582 to 1600).
The bust of Queen Elizabeth on the obverse is Fine but the legend is better except for a flat area at the top; overall, the reverse is better than Fine. It’s not a rare coin but being in reasonably good condition I’d give it a pre-sale auction estimate of £80-100.
