A pretty much as-struck Styca of Northumbria, very scarce to get in this condition! King Eanred of Nortumbria, moneyer is Fordred. Spink 860, circa 820 A.D.

 

VERY hard to take pics!! So here's some more!

Curiously the moneyer got his own name right, what with the R's, but not with Eanred's name, where the R's are retrograded:) That is a nice piece, as you know, these coins are not uncommon, in harsher preservation, but nice specimens are quite scarce and desirous.

Cheers Dave, these coins are exceptionally hard to find in such good condition, so I'm happy!

 

I received this today, good example of a Commonwealth Halfgroat.

Also, an 1854 American Gold Dollar, a tiny coin!! OK, so it's not a new purchase as Matt sent it to me from http://www.ldrcoins.com/ but still, it is nice... :ninja:

 

Thank you ever so much Matt!!!!

First up, a styca, one of the greenest I've seen in a while. The square flan and absolute gobbledygook gives this away as being a contemporary copy, but it's a copy of a copy of a copy! Circa 850.

Secondly, a Venetian Soldino. I've identified dozens of these for people but have never seen one in person, now I own a VF example. This particular example is of the Doge Michele Steno, 1400-1413. Not bad for 99 pence...

Last, but not least, an Elizabeth I Penny of the 5th Issue with the Greek Cross mint mark, a very good portrait for the issue.

What is the diameter of this coin? i.e. Sovereign, Half Sovereign etc...

OK, so an inch is the diameter of a Two Pound coin, i.e. 2.7 cm.

 

The date is 1893, so that makes it of Vickie's Old Head Coinage. I would grade this at a strong VF so you're looking at about £400GBP/$800USD or $785CAD.

 

The photos are slightly fuzzy, the coin could be an EF or even aUNC but I cannot tell and so would play safe with a strong VF.

 

Please do not hesitate to email me at Clive@HistoricCoinage.com if you have any further queries, I hope that I have been of assistance.

 

Cheers,

 

Clive.
