Previous Weeks’ Listings (scroll down this page for “This Week’s Listings”):
III Hammered Silver Voided Long Cross EXTETER Mint Penny. Class 2b2, WALTER ON ECCE (
WTH-6845: Henry VII Hammered Silver
Tudor Halfgroat. Initial
mark Tun, 1495-98,
WCom-6846: 1649 Commonwealth Hammered Silver Sixpence. Initial mark Sun, Spink 3219. If you take out the anchor coins (58, 59, 60) and the 55 and 57 (both of which are excessively rare dates with only 2 and 3 examples recorded respectively), the 49 is the rarest of the lot and by some margin. It is estimated that there are less than 15 extant examples of the 1649 sixpence. Further, there are roughly the same number of 1658 (anchor) sixpences extant as there are 1649s so you can see this is a very rare date in the series as well as being full flan (2.96 grams / 45.9 grains) and very nice grade. £825

WTH-6835: 1564 Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Sixpence.

A rare type coin with a high book price. £265
WCA-6836: Charles II Silver “Royalist” Supporters’ Badge. Charles II (issued during Charles's exile - Commonwealth period, 1649-60) Silver Medal, listed in Medallic Illustration (M.I.(i)440/9) as RARE. These were Royalist supporters badges issued to supporters or potential supporters of the monarchy, of which there were a great many, during the dark period of the Commonwealth. They were often sewn into clothing to hide them as to be caught displaying affection and support for the monarchy under Cromwell would not go down too well. A nice piece of tangible English Civil War history. £355
