It was the turn of Bluff King Hal to be unearthed today….poor old Henry has had quite a life though. Nibbled, nadgered and gnarled …and clipped….but nevertheless its another Hammy from my new permission. From my research it seems to be a Tower Groat. These were actually struck after Henry’s death and into the reign of Edward VI. Incredibly light ((1.4g) even after it had been clipped: diameter 24mm) and of very poor quality of striking, you can see that the coinage was in a poor state of affairs during this period (1547-1551).
