This one looks to me like the round bust variety (no L) and I would say bronze. Still a nice find overall.
    Thanks for the detailed feedback! Much appreciated, Very informative. HH

    well done Kim! Congrats on your saves! I think the same way about unreadable coins. Unfortunately many coins are ruined as the farmers use lots of manure as fertilizers in Germany. I have a huge graveyard full of unreadable coins which won't clean as the material itself is hurt badly.

    Thank you, “Horst”. I have been to your beautiful country. It is a shame how many items get ruined by their stay in the ground! HH

    sweet coin, just goes to prove that you never know what is in the ground. relics are always cool too as you see a tiny bit of the past revealed.
