Are we stuck again? I'd like to post 1571, but I'm holding out hope that we will get a 1573 so we keep in sequence without a break!

 

As a subtitute, here is an undated `probably to maybe´ 1573:

I have an entry for 1569, but nothing for 1570 that I can remember anyway.

 

I've already posted my 1570 (dated) ryal further up the line.

Now im not sure if this is 1568 over 7 or 1563 with a scrape that makes it look like an 8. What do you rekon?

 

Anyway it is an Elizabeth I threepence.

Looks like a standard 8 to me, if it were a 7 then it would be backwards under your interpretation.

Almost but not quite 1567! Any chance someone has a definitive '67?

Hey.....You must have been sleeping when I posted the Mary Queen of Scots Ryal dated 1567 (post 1012 in this thread). :ninja: The 1/4 Ducat brought us to 1566. The sol Parisis brings us to 1565. We are now looking for a 1564. I have one, but the date isn't too obvious from the poor scan I have of it. If no-one else can come up with a 1564 i'll try re-scanning to see if i can show the date better.

Elizabeth I Sixpence. One of the very best portraits of Elizabeth that I have ever seen, truly stunning. Scarce 'large flan' type of 1561. m.m. pheon. Large bust with hair swept back and rose behind. These are much scarcer compared to their smaller counterparts. Not often do you see these with no clipping either.

Clive, how could you? It is bad enough you mention Elizabeth's 'LARGE BUST', but then you make reference to her 'BEHIND' :ninja: Shame on you sir, she would have sent you to the Tower(of London that is) if she was still alive. Mind, I am so relieved that you stopped making any further comment on her body parts.

 

Very nice coin, makes me wish I collected hammered though.
