Looks like a wonderful coin. I love digging the hammered coins we find here in Devon England and will never get tired of seeing them come out of the ground. Great coin and if your interested I have put a few of my coins at the following page http://metaldetectorreviewsuk.com/metal-detecting-finds-uk-silver-coins/
