Hi again,

Found this hammered while out detecting yesterday. The voided shortcross puts it somewhere between Henry II and Henry III, but I'm not sure which of the 4 monarchs it is, since the coins look so similar and the bust is quite worn.

If anyone can give me a more precise ID that would be great :D

Thanks
