EDWARD I ´Halfpenny´ (London) New Coinage.1279-1307

 


1279-1307.
An excellent example of an Edward I halfpenny. This coin may well be a 'unique' variety as it has an inner wire-line circle on both obverse and reverse which is not pictured or described in any of the classic reference works.Very unusual. Good VF for issue and totally original.

A fellow hammered consulant has kindly provided the following details and comment about this possibly new type .............
"This halfpenny is somewhat of a mystery. The style of the portrait seems to fit in with class 3 - but not quite. Also the irons used for the letter 'S' fit an early class 4. The big problem is the inner wire-line circle on both sides (?) This is obviously meant as a scribed guide for the pellet circles but the die cutter has chosen to form them outside the line."
