Shilling

 

WTH-5493:  1554 Philip & Mary Facing Busts Hammered Silver Shilling.  English titles only and the rarer of the dates.  S.2501.  Rare Tudor coin.  £595

 

WTH-5902:  1554 Philip & Mary Facing Busts Hammered Silver Shilling.  Full titles, Spink 2500.  No creasing, full flan and very nice grade.  £1,295

 

WTH-6416:  1554 Philip & Mary Facing Busts Hammered Silver Shilling.  Full titles, Spink 2500.  Extremely high grade – I’ve not seen better – with an old, contemporary mark of disapproval on Philip’s head.  £1,495

 

 

Groats

 

WTH-6463:  Philip & Mary Hammered Silver Groat.  1554-58.  Spink 2508.  Initial mark Lis.  Strong bust and legends – just a small unrepaired flan crack at 9 o’clock.  £245

 

 

Sixpence

 

WTH-5408:  1557 Philip and Mary Facing Busts Hammered Silver Sixpence.  English titles.  Unusually uncreased and problem-free.  Ex Lingford collection.  See other ticket here.  Rarer date £825

 

 

Pence

 

WTH-6568:  Philip and Mary Hammered Billon Silver Penny.  Initial mark halved sun & rose.  Very clear legends and above average for this generally poor issue.  Spink 2510A.  Reported to have been circulated as a halfpenny.  £155

 

WTH-6587:  Philip and Mary Hammered Fine Silver Issue PORTRAIT Penny.  Initial mark Lis.  Very clear legends, good portrait and problem-free.  Spink 2510.  Sold with these old tickets.  This fine silver portrait issue is many times rarer than the billon issue but when it does turn up, coins are invariably damaged or come with problems or issues.  I’ve had one other of these and seen perhaps two more in 30 odd years.  Of the four, this is as easily the best and probably the cheapest as the other three were all over £2,000.  Rare and choice.  £1,995
