Is your surname Orc?

 

This is my only John that isn't a half, whole Johns and Richards I are quite scarce luckily I got the opportunity to buy this cheaply from a good friend.

I suppose! Considering it was probably in use for a long time!

Clive. I have numerous halves and quarters that give me as much pleasure - at least you know they have been used, and conjecture as to what purpose could give you nightmares!!!

It is indeed 5b, not a bad example yourself!

Halves are a great method of collecting, got my William I Cut half today!! :ninja:

Henry II is as far back (in Norman terms) that I go. I concentrate on Plantagenet - although different numismatic authorities list different kings in this category ;)

i.e splitting Henry II toJohn as Angevin. Henry III to Richard II as Plantagenet ( although Richard III claimed to be a Plantagenet) :ninja:

I know what you mean, it gets very confusing!!

Personally I go with William I - Matilda = Normans

Henry II - Richard II = Plantagenet

 

So on and so forth hehehe

 

I tend to focus on Early Anglo-Saxon coinage to Richard II. It covers a load of monarchs but it keeps me busy! :ninja:

 

Recently got an Offa and Harold I. Plus the odd styca.

I have a few Celtic, Roman and Saxon (you know what we numismatists are like - can't resist a nice coin!) But my Plantagenet are the bulk of my collection with Edward I hogging the bulk of the coin cabinet! :ninja:

Oh! yes! there are a few hundred Commem modern and foreign! Just can't stop!

Coin collecting is not a hobby but an addiction! :ninja:

 

My bulk is Henry III Longcross, like your Edward mint run I am going for a mint run of Henry L-Xs!

That would take me centuries and empty all possible bank accounts of mine lol

 

I'm just going for every mint, even quarters and halves. Hopefully, over time, I can improve all of them to EF wholes.

 

Over half-way there! :ninja:
