Scottish Turner or Bodle 1663

Recommended Posts

Scottish Charles II (1649-1685) Scottish copper Turner or Bodle (twopence) 1663 issue. 19mm.

 

From the:

 

HANDBOOK OF THE COINS OF GREAT BRITAIN.

Page 206 Copper 207, Turner Ist issue Obv. CAR.D.G.SCOT.ANG.FRA.ET.HIB.R;m.m. cross of five pellets. Crown above C.R.; on r., mark of value II (=2d). Rev.NEMO.ME.IMPVNE.LACESSET.thistle with leaves, not crowned AE.8 wt 40.8 The II may be for the current value of the coin or may be for "secundus"

 

To give some idea of 'value' a quart of the best ale or beer by measure sealed cost 1d in 1625. So for that turner/bodle or half groat you could have had about 4 pints of beer in 1663.

 

The latin NEMO.ME.IMPVNE.LACESSET stands for 'Dunna mess wit me or y'll git a Glasgy kiss', or in english 'No one shall hurt me with impunity'

I have one of these and am interested in knowing if there is any value. The one I have is in a bit better shape than the one shown here. Can you help?

to get an idea of `value', you'll need to post a pic or two so that the  over-all condition can be gauged.
