I've only got a couple hammered coins. 

This is my first ever hammered that I unknowingly bought from @Ryro

Henry III, Shortcross Half Penny, Moneyer Rauf, London

Another of my favorites is this little pfennig from Ingolstadt, Bavaria 

Rudolph I & Ludwig IV, 1294-1317, Bavaria - Ingolstadt, 1 Pfennig

PS - That is NOT a donkey....it's a panther....oh how far the die engravers had fallen from the height of the Greek and Roman ages to the middle ages...

One of my Daughter's name.  And, since she is my FIRST Daughter... I reckon she could be an Elizabeth I...   😄

This was one of the early Atocha wreak finds by Mel Fisher... I'll also post a photo of the day that Mel's dream came true!

At a cost as his son and daughter in law were killed when their boat sank. The sea cock valve blew at night while they were a sleep. Both drowned.

Tha bald gent is the late Mel Fisher...in the yellow shirt Jimmy Buffett... captians, divers,and crew of Mel's fleet of treasure hunters.

 

Mel's famous saying "today is the day" and one day it was the day...the Atocha found.

Now here's a cob from a beach Wreck...the Johanna went aground off South Africa  ...the wreak lead to the first white graves in SA.  Since it was a beach wreak notice how smooth the cob is ...tossed in the ocean until Spain sent divers to reclaim her loses. 

This specimen was another from the Paddy horde that found its way to Lord M...collection.

I'm primarily a Roman imperial collector, but I have in the last year, started delving into English hammered coinage, here's my two favorite English hammered coins in my collection.

Ferdinand and Isabella ae blanca, Toledo, 1469-1504 AD 

These are cheap and easy to find in terrible condition and difficult with good strike and full legend.

Richard I AR denier 943-996 AD Rouen

Yes, this is Richard I but not the Lionhearted one.  For clarity we can call him Richard, Duke of Normandy.

Is that Edward IV? I'm pretty bad with medieval coins but sure looks like him! Here's mine of Edward the fourth - sure a lot of it has corroded away but it still has a fun portrait so that's all I mind about! Got it at a car boot sale somehow.
