    Elizabeth I Maundy Coinage

    Yes, I was watching that. Nice coin, but as I already had two I thought I wouldn’t be too greedy! Did you bid? Jerry

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Well this is a masterpiece of bullshit to misrepresent a common polished coin as desirable! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/266817921795?itmmeta=01HY5RM384CB3M8QYD8TFJ8EZC&hash=item3e1f966303:g:P9QAAOSwBp9mSGzh&itmprp=enc%3AAQAJAAAA4CND%2BLOUuRITYzdUUVsKmNc8RNgC4PXfp3v24lsBSRZPvhF%2FlAz9v3Hx8dlAY3P%2FXPItNKItc0IHJMuAWgA3rFMU%2Bj0Egb2wTDf9qrj5Jd9yi20pR6JGgXgrbj2UIP2ILr8jbRqFzWbi1wQN3SPga16Npbq61gUrWBFe6OUo%2F0mPfezB8k3PIj3wqumm8BA370XDjxudlz1CXQU4Wxmqir%2Bs0vV3Xm4A3WX4LlKaz0EcyhsmGLcee2wPFaeRHq9w3Qy6GlTZ39CpnMjZNAlVJ86g9u%2FaAfQZOJdqAQu9oKCe|tkp%3ABk9SR6S00LjxYw Jerry
  3. Bah! Underbidder twice. Crazy prices! As for the ‘MS65’1827 penny, my AU55 at less than £1800 is prettier , at least by the photos. Jerry

    Nothing here. ☹️. Perhaps unsurprisingly . Idiot or fraudster? Likely both in this case. Jerry

    Guess the coin

    No idea! No pictures in the NGC registry, but there are 307 higher graded examples! It’s not really a very helpful label. Jerry
  7. That will be KAROLVS, ie Charlemagne, the obverse following the Roman style. Jerry

    Edward the Confessor mint and moneyer?

    Martin Allen has now recorded the coin and all is explained! https://emc.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/full-record/20240117?&0=10540980&1=10540981&2=10540982&3=10540983&4=10540984&5=10540985&6=10540986&7=10540987&8=10540988&9=10540989&10=10540990&11=10540991&12=10540992&13=10540993&14=10540994&15=10540995&16=10540996&17=10540997&18=10540998&19=10540999&20=10541000&21=10541001&22=10541002&23=10541003&24=10541004&25=10541005&26=10541006&27=10541007&28=10541008&29=10541009&30=10541010&31=10541011&32=10541012&33=10541013&34=10541014&35=10541015&36=10541016&37=10663673&38=10663674&39=10663675&40=10663676&41=19870154&42=19880184&43=19930227&44=19940222&45=19950173&46=19950174&47=19970154&48=20000052&49=20010662&50=20060124&51=20070062&52=20100263&53=20120085&54=20130102&55=20130350&56=20150295&57=20170052&58=20180144&59=20180289&60=20200413&61=20210408&62=20220008&63=20230112&64=20240117 Jerry

    Edward the Confessor mint and moneyer?

    AESTAN worked at Winchester and Warwick in the time of Edward the Confessor according to the EMC, but I can’t see either of those in the mint name. Jerry

    Edward the Confessor mint and moneyer?

    That may well help, and Lincoln was my first thought when I saw the photo, but there seems to be an extra letter(s) and Estan is not listed in North. I will see what I can find on the EMC website. Jerry
  11. This small flan penny of Edward the Confessor was found by a detecting cub member on a rally in the south of England, and I am trying to identify the mint and moneyer. The latter seems to read ESTAN or similar, and the mint clearly ends in DI but I cannot find the combination in North or Seaby and would welcome some help here! Thanks, Jerry

    Halfpenny ID check

    Certainly it could be either, I don’t think the photos are definitive. A little but of gunge removal and closer images would help. Jerry

    Halfpenny ID check

    I have to say that given that there appear to be two obverse dies, the original does seem to be F over B and the latest an E over B. Richard, you have your work cut out.🧐 Jerry
  14. Oooh, I bet Guy will be cross at having let that one go……. Jerry
  15. That’s an impressive spot, Pete, another one to watch out for. Did you buy it? Jerry
