    DNW Hammered Prices

    Me? Thank you! Been nearly two years but had a strong urge to check out my old haunts. Hope you're all doing well!

    DNW Hammered Prices

    I'm finding it cheaper to buy from well known dealers than eBay or auction houses. How times have changed... 🤯

    My latest Hereford mint coin

    Wonderful example.

    Edward III penny of York - cross in quatrefoil

    An interesting example! My thought is it's a continuation from the engraving of the die and not a deliberate element of the design, the portrait is definitely Edward III. I've seen similar ones before, e.g. the below.

    Hammered Coins for Sale

    I've just uploaded a new list to my website should it be of interest to anyone here. Plenty of silver hammered coins and a smattering of milled. http://historiccoinage.com/newadditions.php

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    This was originally £1,999 when I posted, so looks like the decimal point has been corrected now.

    token or what ?

    True. Maybe it's the light and metal that makes it look porous then.

    Looking for coins and...? 😥 One way to clean them.

    token or what ?

    It looks to be an imitation of a Henry VII halfgroat (depending on diameter). I'd not think it's contemporary, it looks somewhat soapy which makes me think it's been cast and deliberately 'aged' as I see this a lot with the Westair pieces people modify before listing on online auction sites.

    Hammy ID

    Agreed. Likely a Pinecone-Mascle issue penny (most common after Annulet issue, I believe, and yours isn't an Annulet).
