    1586 Elizabeth I Hammered Sixpence

    Still in disbelief right now after tonights hunt at my best site for early stuff. Accomplished two things I never really thought I had much chance of doing. A hammered English silver and a 16th century one at that It also appears to have been bent like what they call love tokens over in England. Thanks for looking and so glad I could share my excitement with everyone

    Fantastic! Yes that is an English love token for sure. I found one made out of a silver six pence in England, but finding one here is extremely rare.

    16th century coin - not many of those turning up in the US. Big congrats. Big respect for an impressive recovery. Use for a love token is all the more impressive. Voting banner as well.

    Thanks for the votes. Cleaned it up a bit more so that the date really pops and added that pic to original post. You can clearly see Elizabeth on the obverse but she is pretty smooth. I believe that is pretty common on the Elizabeths
