1679 Crown - Is this 3rd or 4th bust?

I agree my friend, hence the challenge!

I personally love this period in history, and I expect the origin was being in Stuart house at school no doubt. I read daily excerpts from Pepys diary, plus one of my ancestors fought in the civil war, so it's no surprise that I ended up focussing on collecting Charles II coins. It would have been Cromwell coinage, but yeah right! I'm not made of money 🤣

All the best,

I thought so when you said Cromwell coinage would have been your preferred choice. One doesn't need any excuse to go for Charles I coins!

I couldn't believe that a replica Cromwell crown was on display for sale in a local antiques bazaar priced at £50 😮

Is that normal? For a replica piece??

They are on sale on etsy or eBay for a few pounds. But that doesn't stop some from trying.
