I've not examined maqny English hammered coins, but I've seen many catalog entries. Yours appears to be an excellent piece based on my limited familiarity. Its a coin I'd be drawn to and proud to own.

Your chequebook would appear to be quite adventurous sir.


It's not a case of `they don't come much better' but more `they just don't come ANY better'. That is a superb example that would grace any collection or museum.


My little sphinctre muscle would be seriously twitching at the thought of writing a cheque to buy that one! :ninja:
