WSax-6448:  Cnut Late Saxon Hammered Silver Penny.  Pointed helmet type (1024-30), B.M.C. xiv.  Blundered and retrograde images – a contemporary imitation of possibly Continental origins.  We’re all aware of the later Norman practice of test cutting Henry 1st pennies, indicating that contemporary counterfeits were a serious issue at the time, but how many of us have actually seen Saxon and Norman contemporary counterfeits?  This coin would fool anyone in Saxon / Norman times (and now), assuming they were illiterate, which many people were.  A rare and interesting coin requiring much research.  Ex Spink.  £385

I will be listing a Matilda penny from the famous Coed-y-Wenalt Hoard early 2018

 

WMH-6476:  William 1st Hammered Norman Penny.  Wallingford (Oxford) mint: +SPARTBRAND.ON.P, Two Stars type (B.M.C. 6, circa 1077-80).  Spink 1255.  There are x89 William 1st Wallingford coins listed on the EMC & SCBI database with only three being BMC 6 and non of those Swartbrand.  This is a hugely rare type-mint combination being unrecorded on EMC & SCBI.  £1,295

 

WMH-6477:  Edward III Hammered Silver Halfgroat.  London mint, Post Treaty, 1369-77.  Spink 1640.  With an inner circle of 16mm, this Halfgroat (groats have a 20mm inner circle), this coin is virtually the same size as a groat!  2.11 grams, 32.6 grains.  £175

 

WMH-6478:  King John Hammered Silver Penny.  Class 5c, RICARD.B.ON.LVN.  Spink 1352.  London mint town.  £129

 

WSC-6479:  Robert “The Bruce” 1st Medieval Scottish Hammered Silver Penny.  Bust of Robert Bruce left, reverse four mullets of five points each.  Coinage was only struck very late in this reign.  Spink 5076.  Once of the rarest, most iconic Scottish coins you can get and also very rare.  This one much better than normally seen (although ‘normally’ is the wrong word when you bear in mind I’ve only seen three of four ever) and equally on a par with one that was doing the rounds at the UK coin fairs which had an asking price of over £2,000 and recently sold.  This coin accompanied by an old auction printout.  £1,250
