Coventry halfpenny


Recommended Posts

Just bought this as part of a group, not in hand yet but the pics are promising. I am just starting to get into this arena, been buying a few from a guy who is unloading a wide range of world medals and tokens.


Not sure the D&H listing...don't know the edge lettering yet.


It looks like the flatness on each side is due to strike and not use?

Robert Reynolds was the issuer of the Lady Godiva tokens and the edge inscription PAYABLE AT THE WAREHOUSE OF ROBERT REYNOLDS & CO is the standard edge for this multi-year series of tokens. The diesinker was William Mainwaring and the manufacturer of the token was William Lutwyche. Robert Reynolds & Co. were ribbon weavers in Coventry.


The other 2 edge varieties for #231 are extremely rare and are likely workman freaks.


A quite common token but always in demand due to its subject matter.
