WTH-6608:  1574  Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Sixpence.  3rd & 4th issues, initial mark Eglantine.  Spink 2563.  1574 as a date represents a frequency of 4.1% for the 2,716 recorded single finds of Elizabeth 1st coins and 4.2% for all 5,588 recorded Elizabeth 1st hoard coins.  £98

 

WTH-6609:  1581 Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Threepence.  Initial mark Latin Cross.  Spink 2573.  Lovely grade.  £98

WTH-6611:  1579 Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Threepence.  Initial mark Greek Cross.  Spink 2573.  Lovely grade.  £129

 

WTH-6612:  Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Halfgroat.  This is the rarest Halfgroat in the entire series, bar none.  Initial mark Castle, 3rd & 4th issue, 1569-71.  Ex Chris Comber (his ticket and others here).  A great rarity although not in the best grade.  £95

 

WTH-6613:  Edward VI Hammered Billon Silver Penny.  Third period, circa 1551, initial mark Mullet.  Spink 2475.  York mint.  £95

WMH-6604:  Henry VI Hammered Silver Halfpenny.  Pinecone-Mascle issue of 1431-32/3.  Rarer Calais mint.  Spink 1885.  A very short issue and in remarkably good grade.  £69

 

WJC-6605:  1644 Charles 1st Exeter Groat.  Rare dated provincial mint coin with the large Rose as the initial mark.  Dated 1644.  Spink 3088.  A rare Charles 1st Civil War four pence in exceptionally good grade for the issue.  £575

 

WTH-6606:  Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Groat.  Initial mark Cross Crosslet, second issue, 1st December 1560 to 24th October 1561.  Spink 2556.  Hammered groats were only struck for a total of 18 months (Spring of 1560 to October 1561) – the Martlet and Cross Crosslet were the last issues even though Elizabeth reigned for a further 40+ years.  Although the Cross Crosslet say a whole 8 days more production, today it is slightly rarer than the Martlet.  This coin is very nice grade.  £245

 

WAu-6598:  1602 James VI Scottish Hammered Gold Full Sword & Sceptre Piece.  Eighth issue, value 120 shillings.  Spink 5460.  A problem-free Scottish hammered gold coin which is very reasonably priced. Sold with a pair of old slips – one being a photograph of the coin, the other it’s accompanying description stating: “Ex Aston’s, September 1976”. (E)  £1,395

 

WAu-6599:  1627-8 Charles 1st Hammered Gold Crown.  Tower mint under the king with initial mark Castle.  Group B, second bust, Spink 2711.  An unusual coin as there ios no inner circle on the obverse.  The ticket mentions this with some reference that I can’t make out.  The castle, as an initial mark, is one of the rarest in the Charles 1st series for gold crowns.  A nice gold coin from this most interesting of reigns (E).  £595

 

WMH-6600:  Henry VI Hammered Silver Groat.  Annulet issue, (1422 – 1430), London mint.  Spink 1835 - annulets on the reverse only.  £125

 

WCom-6601:  Commonwealth Hammered Silver Halfgroat or Twopence.  1649-60.  Spink 3221.  A high grade coin that was unevenly struck (ie angled strike).  £125

 

WTH-6602:  Henry VII Hammered Silver Halfgroat.  Initial mark Martlet (1504-9), York Episcopal mint struck under Archbishop Savage.  Double arched crown.  Spink 2214.  Very minor clipping together with a weak strike to the portrait (worn dies perhaps?), otherwise a very nice and clear example.  £95

 

WMH-6595:  Stephen Hammered Silver Norman “Southern Variant” Civil War Penny.  An irregular Lincoln Southern issue, Spink 1301, North 897.  Obverse facing bust very much reminiscent of the earlier William 1st BMC 2 bonnet type.  Reverse is lozenge fleury.   Moneyer PAINE of Lincoln.  Ex Roderick Richardson (£1,600 in 2004) and a reverse die pair to the Lockett example which was sold on his death in 1950.  A very rare coin.  £995

 

WMH-6596:  Henry II “Tealby” Hammered Silver Penny.  Bust D3, 1167-1170, WILLAM of Carlisle.  Spink 1340.  Old tickets here.  An outstanding bust for the Tealby issue.  £245

WMH-6593:  Henry V Hammered Silver Halfgroat.  London mint, class C, 1413 – 1422.  Spink 1772.  The rarest of the three class C halfgroats (£525 Spink 2018) and much above average grade for issue.  £395

 

WTH-6594:  Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Groat.  Initial mark Martlet, second issue, December 1560 to October 1561.  Spink 2556.  Hammered groats were only struck for a total of 18 months (Spring of 1560 to October 1561) – the Martlet was the last issue even though Elizabeth reigned for a further 40+ years.  £245
