AV 1/2 Scudo d'oro YEAR IX (1709)
Pope Clemente IX 1700-21
ex: Eric P. Newman
These are all our coins.
If you want a wishlist, I would go with 7jags' McMillan obverse uniface and a Derwent Wood (any will do)
Anyway, to resume the thread
1684 4th bust shilling, ex Willis
1807 restrike silver proof halfpenny, ex Selig. I think it is highly likely this coin is also ex Foster 79part (1953), graded EF but as a lot of 20. I don't believe a silver proof would be listed as part of a bulk lot unless impaired - which this is with the reverse scratches. This lot was bought by the dealer Geoffrey Hearn, who listed it in 1954 as mint state, but is unquestionably the same example. Don't know of any more.
Charles I E5/2 shilling with mm. Tun, ex Peter Mitchell collection
Undated Taylor restrike with a nude Britannia reverse (Peck 991). ex Boulton family collection
1868 proof third farthing in cupro-nickel. ex Cheshire Collection and Harris
'Welsh Marches' halfcrown, ex Peter Mitchell collection. My personal view is that these were struck at Hereford in the middle of October 1644. The Bristol style declaration, large plume mark (also used on the Chester unite) and possibly indicating the position of Prince Rupert as President of Wales until 30th Nov 1644 whilst he was at Bristol from the end of September, together with the arrival at Hereford of Gerard with 3000 men on the 1st October for over-wintering in the area would neatly dovetail to provide a plausible case for this issue.
some marks on slab, but a great version of a rather scarcer sovereign date
I will try to dig out some additional rarities on the next week
I don't know why the picture looks so awful as in coin it is quite prooflike.
AV Dukat ND (1725)
Karl I 1670-1730
Edward I class 3g2 penny of Durham under Bishop de Insula. ex Harris and Wayne
Aethelred II CRVX penny of Huntingdon. ex Doubleday
Henry II class 1b1 penny of Northampton. ex Mass and Sazama
Henry VIII posthumous halfgroat with mintmark K (for Thomas Knight). A very rare mark for this. ex Lockett and Shuttlewood.
1697Y third bust sixpence. ex Slaney & Mildenhall collections
Cantii quarter stater of EPPILUS. ex Stack collection
1790 gilt copper pattern halfpenny, Peck 992. ex Whetmore
Alchred (765-774) sceat. ex Abramson collection
AV "Fi'ahd Type" Tanka AH734
Muhammad III bin Tughluq 1325-51AD
ex: Paul Stevens Coll.
Edward IV half angel with mm. cinquefoil over pierced cross. These dies and a groat (type XXI/XIX) appear to be the only examples for cinquefoil where an earlier die has been overmarked for use in that period. It appears that there was a wholesale withdrawal of dies and new ones with the cinquefoil mark made from scratch, this contradicting previous operating practice where all dies were overmarked until worn out. Anyway, somewhat commoner than the previous coin with 5(?) known and ex Ossey collection
Charles II third hammered issue halfcrown with the legend reading CAROLV (no S). According to ESC there should be dozens of these extant, but I'm only aware of this one and the Burstal coin, so probably much rarer than the literature would suggest. Ex Hunt, Adams and Hulett collections
Edward IV heavy coinage groat with mm. Cross Fleury/Lis. London mint. Ex Lessen.
Edward IV light coinage groat of York. ex Inder collection
Charles I Tower halfcrown, type Hks 3a2. This rare with the full legend reading of BRIT and FRAN. ex Lingford, Hunt and Hulett collections
Amazing coins! Always look forward to your posts
Following up, ANACS removed lacquer and graded it SP62. Because many Canadian collectors consider him a butcher, the coin no longer has his provenance. I figured it was better in the long run to not have Cook associated with it. I wonder if anyone else has deliberately removed the provenance of a famous collector... sort of the opposite of this thread.
This thread nearly fell off the bottom of the page, so let's resume.
Charles I 3/3a mule sixpence (obverse has an inner circle, the reverse doesn't). Ex Hulett collection.
St. Edmund memorial penny, ex Williams collection
Henry VIII 3rd coinage halfgroat struck at the Bristol mint under William Sharrington. ex Freehill collection.
Edward IV 1st reign ryal of London with mm. Long cross fitchee. ex Doubleday
Allectus quinarius struck at Colchester? ex Evan Salholm. Apologies for the garish colours
Like Henry II.
I do like yours
Man you members are fun. Nice to check this stuff out now and then
Reino de Mallorca
AV Real de oro ND
Pedro IV Aragon/ I Mallorca 1336-87
Not in Tauler & Fau (Spanish Medieval Gold Coinage) with this reverse legend, unique?
Nice coin but I think you were cheated out of 1 gold Escudo. Please contact the auction firm and try to get an extra gold 1 Escudo out of them. I have one of these too! but unfortunately it's hairlined.
The 1825 is also quite an early date. Here's mine but not from a major collection.
1875H halfpenny, the H indicating it was struck at the Heaton mint in Birmingham. Freeman 323 with dies 13+K*. ex C W Peck collection
Anglo-Saxon sceat, secondary series type R9. ex Abramson collection
Elizabeth I sixth coinage halfgroat with mm. Key (obv. over Woolpack). ex Walter Wilkinson collection
And another ex Wilkinson coin, this time a 3rd issue sixpence with mm castle (obverse over crown). His ticket suggests this is possibly the only one known. Definitely not a thing of great beauty!
And another rarity from the same place. This time a 1579 5th issue sixpence with muled mintmarks, Latin Cross over Eglantine on the obverse and Greek Cross on the reverse.
For those interested in the coinage of Elizabeth I, Ian Brown, Chris Comber and Walter Wilkinson (BCW) did the research and wrote the definitive study for the silver coins, which is published by Galata.
