"Tealby"

 

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

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

 

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

 

 

 

King John (1199-1216)  Read about King John

 

WMH-5640:  King John Hammered Silver Penny.  Class 6b, PIERES-ON-DVR.  Spink 1354.  This is the very rare Durham mint town.  £185

WMH-6718:  King John Rhuddlan (WELSH) Mint Hammered Silver Short Cross Penny.  Group II, class iii, SIMOND.NO.RVLA, initial mark Cross Pommee, Spink p.167.  Wren, in his book on short cross coinage, states of the Rhuddlan mint coinage: “These coins are considerably cruder than the normal issues and the legends are sometimes retrograde, with reversed lettering”.  Being very loosely based on the English class 5 penny, this coin is certainly struck from a crude obverse die but contrasted sharply with an excellent quality reverse die that is clear, well struck with no reverse lettering and the only sign of being retrograde the NO for ON.  An excellent example of the only Medieval coin to be struck in Wales.  £325
