Previous Weeks’ Listings (scroll down this page for “This Week’s Listings”):

 

WAu-6449:  Henry VI Hammered GOLD Noble.  Annulet issue, London mint.  H in reverse centre, annulet in one spandrel.  6.65g.  Spink 1801, Schneider 832 var.  Slightly creased, very fine.  Ex Baldwins (sold with their printout).  £2550

 

WTH-6461:  1566 Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Sixpence.  3rd & 4th issues, initial mark Lion.  Very nice grade.  Spink 2562.  £145

 

WMH-6458:  Henry III Voided Long Cross Medieval Penny.  Newcastle mint.  Moneyer = Ion.  Class 3b, Spink 1363.  £55

 

WMH-6459:  Henry III Voided Long Cross Medieval Penny.  Bury St Edmonds mint.  Moneyer = Ion.  Class 3b, Spink 1363.  £49

 

WSC-6460:  David II Medieval Scottish Hammered Silver Penny.  Second coinage, 1351-57.  VILLA ABERDON – the very rare Aberdeen provincial mint.  Spink 5121 where the 2015 price guide lists this coin at £900.  I am unaware of any Aberdeen pennies coming up for sale in recent or even non recent times.  A great rarity.  £695

 

WSC-6452:  Alexander III Scottish Hammered Silver Penny.  Second coinage, 1280-86.  The rarer Perth mint town.  Very nice grade.  Spink 5055.  £165

 

WAu-6453:  Edward IV Medieval Hammered Silver Angel.  Second reign, initial mark annulet, 1471-72.  Very nice grade.  Spink 2091.  £2,395

 

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
