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


WTH-6445:  1595 Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Sixpence.  Sixth issue, initial mark Woolpack. Spink 2578b.   One of the rarest dates in the series, forming just 1% of all recorded single and hoard finds.  £165


WTH-6446:  1572 Elizabeth 1st Hammered Silver Three Halfpence.  Initial mark Ermine.  Spink 2569.  A really nice coin.  £175


WAu-6447:  James VI Scottish Hammered Gold Unit or Sceptre Piece.  Tenth coinage just after James VI  of Scotland becoming James 1st of England.  1609-25.  Graffiti on the obverse which, if desired, can be easily removed without a trace by any half-decent jeweller.  Personally I never go down that route, even to the extent of cleaning.  Spink 5464.  A very desirable hammered gold coin from Scotland.  £2,495

WSax-6443:  Edward the Elder Middle Saxon Kings of Wessex Hammered Silver Penny.  Moneyer EADMVND, last Small Cross type, Spink 1087.  Excellent grade - the small peck marks indicate a Viking influence.  Rare.  £695

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


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-6450:  1567 Elizabeth 1st MILLED Silver Sixpence.  Small bust, initial mark Lis.  Produced on Eloye Mestrelle’s screw press powered by a horse-drawn mill.  Rarer date.  £189
