    Well I bought me another one, now I own two English hammered coins. I have a lot to learn on these coins for sure. I will be getting me a book on them soon.

    More than likely Edward II. Longshanks didn't have a bifoliate crown pence until class 10, but I can't find a colon stop mentioned with class 10. The obverse legend "+EDWA R ANGL DNS HYB" was very common with Edward II.

    That's a damn nice coin. You don't often see them without smooshed-in face syndrome!

    That's in good condition too, nice. I've been browsing English hammered pennies for a while no but still not pulled the trigger.

    Congrats on your second English hammered penny @bcuda you picked a really nice one.

    Terminal stops of pellets in the obverse legend were used in classes 10ab, 10cf and 11. From the photo it is difficult to tell if there are 2 or 3 pellets after hYB. It can be very hard to determine which class these pennies fall into. I personally don't worry too much, and am happy to leave coins as Edward I/II. The best resource in terms of price and ease of use is the book below. I would highly recommend it.

    Thank you for the reply and information @TheRed !

    I looked at the coin and it has 3 pellets after the hYB if that helps identify this coin any better.

    Thank you Rasiel!

    I don't know much at all on these coins but I did look at quite a few before I picked this one.
