"Tealby"

 

WMH-5540:  Henry II “Tealby” Hammered Silver Penny.  Bust C2, 1163-1167, Rogier of Canterbury.  Flat striking area to left but otherwise a much above average example in this poor issue.  £149

 

WMH-5992:  Henry II “Tealby” Hammered Silver Penny.  Class F, 1174-1180.  This is the last of the Tealby issues and is rarer than the preceding classes.  Moneyer REINARD of Ilchester?  Comes with an old catalogue entry which states the coin is ex Patrick H. James collection.  Ticket also states that the coin is nVF and cleaned.  Whilst the coin does appear cleaned, this could also be explained by the coin coming out of a hoard. Spink 1342.  £225

 

WMH-6118:  Henry II “Tealby” Hammered Silver Penny.  Class D, 1167-1170.  Moneyer HENRI of Bury St Edmonds.  Spink 1340.  Sold with an old sale’s slip.  £175

 

WMH-6187:  Henry II “Tealby” Hammered Silver Penny.  Class D, 1167-1170.  Moneyer WILLEM of Carlisle.  Spink 1340.  Sold with an old sale’s envelope.  Rarer mint town.  £195

 

WMH-6315:  Henry II “Tealby” Hammered Silver Penny.  Class C, 1163-1167.  Moneyer WILEM of Newastle.  Spink 1339.  Rarer mint town – even rarer than Carlisle.  £249

 

WMH-6320:  Henry II “Tealby” Hammered Silver Penny.  Bust C, 1163-1167, Goldhavoc of Canterbury.  Unusually round flan, typical of Carlisle and Newcastle.  The strike, whilst centred, is weak and the dies were not the best.  £145

 

 

 

Short Cross

 

WMH-6319:  Henry II Short Cross Hammered Silver Penny.  Class 1b1, +RODBERT-ON-OXON (Oxford).  Nice coin – weak on the obverse but very clear legends.  A much rarer mint town.  £155

 

 

 

Richard I (AD 1189 - 1199) Read about Richard I

 

WMH-6012:  Richard 1st Hammered Silver Short Cross Penny.  +ROBERD.ON.CAN – very clear legends.  Canterbury mint.  Unusually large flan, reminiscent of the earlier Henry II issues.  Class 4a, Spink 1348a.  £125

 

WMH-6069:  Richard 1st Hammered Silver Short Cross Penny.  +GOCELM.ON.WINC -  rarer Winchester mint.  The voided short cross issue can be off putting to collectors as the obverse legends of Henry II, Richard 1st, John and Henry III are the same.  Here we are on firm ground as the moneyer GOLELM only ever produced Class 3 pennies and that class lies firmly in the middle of Richard 1st.  Spink 1347.  There is a contemporary flan split (done at the point of striking) and a metal flaw (again presumed at the point of striking) next to the right eye.  This looks like a hole due to the nature of the lighting.  It is not.  £145
