Quarter noble

Recommended Posts


 Having a search through eBay and came across this quarter noble. Would this coin be a forgery? The legend is a new one on me, I know spelling mistakes were made in the legends. The obverse legend looks like ..EXALTABITVR . IN . GAHLOIA.

The style looks quite regular to me, even if images are not perfect. From Lord Stewartby's excellent book "English Coins" at page 216 refering to pre-treaty group E " the mis-spellings GHLORIA or GAHLORI on the quarters are less obviously explicable". 

So your coin could be a small variety of the coins cited above
