Is that a coin struck over another coin?

 

Nope, it's slipped in the dies causing the reverse to be particularly off-struck. :ninja:

Those designs are great!

 

I know, I have a soft spot for Henry VI large coins such as the groats and halfgroats.

 

 

I like how the cross shows through. With his beady eyes, it's kind of scary looking.

 

Yeah, the shadowing echoes how it was made. Well he was meant to be a 'scary' character anyway although he was very strict and a good ruler who took Wales and Scotland. Although the rebels soon rebelled, name kind of gives it away, and he died on his way to meet the rebel leader known as Robert the Bruce.

Love it!

 

As do I. The portraits on these are normally very faded so was pleased to pick up a visible one.

Two coins to report.

 

One is a halfpenny. You should all be able to tell me who the monarch is...

I bought it for the portrait, been a very long time since I've seen such a good portrait. It really is stunning in hand, the photos certainly do not do it justice. Scarce denomination.

 

 

 

 

This one is very rare indeed. One of the rarest known pennies of Edward III.

Reading mint, Third coinage with Escallop in one quarter of reverse.

Not the most attractive of coins but rare and so I could not resist.

Great portrait. Who is the king?

I think its in excellent condition considering its apparent rarity. I mean, how rare is it? It's well centered, well struck, but impressively worn. Why is it considered rare?

Recognise him now?

Reading is a very rare mint. The more common ones are York, Durham, London and Canterbury. Reading was not in activity for long. According to one book, there are about 15 of these Reading pennies known.

I didn't need your help this time IDing him!

Three new'uns arrived today.

Edward III Halfpenny Third/Florin Coinage, London reading EDWARDVS REX. I bought it purely for it being a brockage, I have only ever come across one or two so had to have it. It has only had its obverse struck, leaving an impression on the reverse. Looks like it circulated just like any other.

Henry III Continental imitation of a penny. Reverse reads ARW IENR ONC AN which makes little sense. Nevertheless, it is in good condition.

Great coins, Clive. Not sure I'm a fan of the E I obverse with the inverted triangle.

 

Yeah, it's not the most aesthetically pleasing of coins but it is quite scarce so I don't mind too much.

Photographed two of my newest coins;

Above is a Voided Longcross Penny of Henry III. Class Vb but of one of the rarest mints of the series. The moneyer is Ricard and the mint is Durham.

An Edward I Penny of London mint. A less common class, class 3a, with a particularly nice portrait. The CIVI of CIVI TAS LON DON looks abnormal...

George, here's a post I did in December located here: http://www.coinpeople.com/index.php?showtopic=22403

 

 

Right, Voided Longcross. Take a look at the photo below;

 

1224937833_original_2.jpg

 

The 'voided' refers to the space, or void, in between the arms of the cross. So the cross is more like tramlines/train tracks than a single arm such as the coin below;

 

1225035080_original_2.jpg

 

 

Here's a simplified diagram, excuse my lack of artistic talent...

209051458_o.jpg

 

Left : Voided Longcross, void in between arms.

Right : Longcross, no space, just one arm.

OH! So "voided" doesn't mean it was stamped to void the coin. You mean "void" as in "a space".

 

Correct, so a voided longcross means a longcross with a void.
