Do you recognize this symbol?
« on: February 02, 2021, 12:14:47 PM »
These are three small stamps struck on a William III halfpenny. The two...swords or daggers...are easily recognized, but I can't decipher the bottom stamp. Any idea what it is?

Thanks,

Something Masonic perhaps?

I think it may be a spur, used to encourage a horse and a symbol of nobility, as are the swords. Spurs are not necessarily rowelled.
