Ætheling Posted September 24, 2005 Report Share Posted September 24, 2005 I saw it and i couldn't resist it. Now this is why i love hammered coinage, there's alot of well rubbish out there and pieces of dubious quality. In fact quality is all across the board. But occasionally you can stumble upon one of the gems littered here and there. This is the best struck Edward I penny i've ever seen. Pity about the slight edge chip but despite that this coin looks as good as it did when it left the mint in 1280. There's nothing really rare about this coin, the only thing which marks it out is the strike. It's Class 2a (and Class 2 seems a good class strikewise) and it's from London (the common mint).
