    Spanish Netherlands/ Tournai
    AV Double Albertin d'or 1603
    Tournai Mint
    Albertus VII & Isabella 1598-1621 Archduke/ Duchess of Austria and Cardinal to boot....
    The last coin from Künker Auction was graded Vorz+ (EF+)
    the Heritage is slabbed as MS-63/ however the first coin has more eye appeal. lf - 2023-04-19T204646.915.jpg lf - 2023-04-19T204702.204.jpg

    Charles I Hks. type 5 halfcrown, the final Tower Mint design for the reign. mm. Sun, so struck 1645-6.

    Charles I G1/2 Briot bust shilling with mm. (R) and inverted mark of value, struck 1644-5

    Charles I 1643 Oxford shilling. Morrieson D-2.

    Charles I shilling of York, struck sometime between January 1642/3 and January 1643/4, but likely earlier. This is the finer type of the two York shillings, with the engraver likely to be Briot or his understudy, Rawlings. Besly dies 2Ee.

    This is one of the five designs of the other, cruder York shillings. Besly dies 1A

    A badly double struck 1646 'B' mint shilling with the obverse mm. Plume over BR monogram. Boon suggested that following the fall of Bristol on 27th Sept 1645, dies were smuggled out to Oxford, on to Ashby ('A') and subsequently on to Bridgnorth ('B'). For various reasons the chronology doesn't add up with the physical evidence of the coins also a little contradictory, so the attribution requires further work IMO. The mints are clearly related in that A over BR, B over A, Plume over A and Plume over BR are all known. My money is on somewhere in Wales for this issue and not Bridgnorth, which from 12th March onwards held a garrison of 120 men. The nearly 30 dies attributed to this location would be a bad case of overkill with one die per four or five soldiers and all dies engraved and coins struck inside one month.

    Something more mundane - a final issue penny

    An 'HC' halfcrown. I'm not convinced by the Hartlebury Castle attribution, or at least not in 1646, when the 'siege' lasted for one day! I'm more inclined to 1644 as the date and a couple of options spring to mind.

    Charles I 3a3 halfcrown with mm. Sun, the obverse over (R). Interesting in that it misses out the intervening Eye mark, so an old die resurrected.

    1646 'B' mint groat.

    Civil War 'Ormonde' halfcrown, struck for payment to Irish troops on the Royalist side on the orders of the Earl of Ormonde, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland in 1643.

    1644 Bristol halfcrown (Morrieson B1). This must have been struck from the dregs at the bottom of the pot as the metal was not well mixed, this coin having a high copper content.

    W/SA halfgroat. The reverse of this was not known to Allen in his 1938 BNJ article, though a couple others are now known. Still trying to work out where in the sequence this comes relative to the other two reverses used. It's a lot cruder than the other two, so should be either first or last, but the obverse die, common to all three die pairs, doesn't degrade appreciably to sort out the order.

    A Tower mint type 4 halfcrown with mm. Star. Interesting in that the obverse mark is over Triangle over Anchor, but the type wasn't introduced until the Star mark. Presumably the die was used for the previous issue, but was not rubbed down sufficiently to erase the old detail when recycled for re-engraving.

    1658 Cromwell shilling

    For those unfamiliar with Larins, they were created as hairpins or fish hook styles by bending over silver wire and stamped with a design
