So, why those American bits, clive? just curious.

 

They were part of a large collection I disposed of, so I chose some bits I liked and paid a fair price for them. Meant I got to see them in hand and get a good deal.

It's something so different to what I collect and that's why I like it so much. Thanks, Santa.

 

 

Secondly, a Henry VIII Groat. Second Coinage, Laker bust D. Slightly off-centre but an attractive piece nonetheless.

Very nice Clive. That Presidential Dollar set is really quite a nice Secret Santa surprise. WOW!

 

Love the groat. Looks like Henry took a shot in the nose.

Jeez! Oldie!

 

On another note, have you ever had problems with coins being lost/damaged in the mail?

 

Only a couple of times and that was only damage. I've never had one go missing, yet... :rolleyes:

This one really excited me when I saw it.

 

Edward the Confessor Radiate/Small Cross Type. Wulfric on Rochester - very rare and in stunning condition, albeit a slight wave.

Only two Edward the Confessors of Rochester are recorded on the EMC and neither are of this type or moneyer.

How often does one encounter radiate crowns?

 

This is the only one I can think of as many are termed as diameded or with bonnets. So the type itself isn't that rare but the presence of radiate crowns on coins of this era is.

Strapend.jpg

 

 

It is part of a 9th-century Anglo-Saxon strap-end with the animal head terminal having been broken off in antiquty. These are often made of silver and this one features an enamelled stag on it.
