Hi, Would anyone be able to id this half penny any further?

It appears to be a continental sterling that is trying to be an Edward I but I can't narrow it down any further.

The reverse seems to be CIVITAS ?ONDON with a blundered legend.

weight is 0.47 - so likely a half penny
diameter is 13mm

many thanks

Henry VI half penny, perhaps. Not exactly this, but close: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces162344.html

Thanks for that - yes the obverse legend is a close match. Not sure what that diamond at 8 o'clock is supposed to be - but everything else fits - and the portrait is similar too.

Edit:
5th coin down

I think that L in London is just a Gothic L with the right vertical stroke exaggerated enough that it almost resembles a U. Was pretty common around that time (for example, also on the silver half groats of Wladyslaw of Poland, 1386-1434).
