Class 5 Sub-Class ID of Henry III Voided Long Cross Penny

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

Recently purchased the attached coin with seller ID'ing it as a class 5a2 Henry III penny but is this designation correct as have noticed the chin is pointed which supposedly shouldn't be the case in class 5a2 coins according to link below?

Would appreciate any confirmation on this, many thanks.

Joe

If it is not a 5a2, then it could be a 5a1, in which case you got a bargain. But I am no expert.

You can rule out 5a1. The letter X is incorrect and the crown ends for class 5a1.5b2 is more likely. 

This guide is a bit better. It may help. Longcross Coin Guidebook

Thanks for input & sharing that guidebook. Yes I would agree that it is most likely 5b2. 👍
