    I recently purchased this coin as a Henry VI, but I cannot find a reference for it in my '98 copy of 'Spink'. Can anyone help please?
    There is an 'annulet' to the right of the crown and a '?' to the left. (Silver penny?)

    Looks halfpenny-ish to me, but yes, need weight and diameter.

    I don't have my copy of SCBC handy, but I think it is a York penny of Henry V from the mullet and annulet issue. The letters EBO RACI are visible from right to left on the lower half of the reverse. I'm certain of York, but Henry Y is a guess. I'm not the familiar with the small silver of the Lancasters.

    I am not able to provide weight and diameter as the coin has not yet arrived.
    @TheRed Thank you for those comments. It is as I thought.
    I have cancelled my purchase and I have requested a return/refund due to incorrect description.
