That's a good strong portrait Paddy, so often these are comparatively weak. Indeed, I have one of my own that is considerably weaker (P&M variety). I dug it from the ground in Gloucestershire three years ago, my only metal-detecting Tudor-find so-far.
In fact by coincidence, me and four others were back at the same farm last Sunday but none of us found a 'dickybird' except a few Civil War musket balls and a load of trash - just goes to show rather like fishing, when digging some days are luckier than others.
Getting back to Phillip and Mary, in my wider collection, one of my best Tudor coins is the P&M shilling I display as my avatar - it's one of my real favorites with a beautiful patina. Frank
