    Hi. This is meant to be a Henry V halfgroat, s. 1774. But...it looks much more like a Henry VI halfgroat to me. (No mullet on the chest, no annulets by the crown). Something like SCBC 1839. It's 1.79g and 20mm, which fits Henry VI too. Is anyone able to identify it (and with a little more precision on what type it is)? Thank you

    I can't help you, because you're already better informed and armed with reference material than I am- but I will say it is quite a handsome medieval.

    Thank you. Yes, to be fair, that's why I got it. But working out what these coins are is quite an art...

    S.1876. Henry VI pinecone-mascle halfgroat. Mascle before LON & pinecone after DON. Pinecones on the obverse before and after DI and a mascle after REX. Position of these marks can vary.
