  1. For 1693 halfcrowns with the 3 of the date correct (second busts, third shields, QVINTO edge), the latest version of English Silver Coinage by Bull indicates that there are two types depending on the stops ▪️: ESC 860 with a ▪️ after GRATIA and the ▪️ after HI moved to before REX (i.e. after a crowned cruciform shield); ESC 861 with a ▪️ after GRATIA and no ▪️ between ET and REX. While examples of coins without a ▪️ after GRATIA exist, my query is about the “no ▪️ between ET and REX”. Has anyone ever seen an example? The only combinations I am aware of when the 3 of the date is correct are: reverse HI (crown) ▪️ REX ▪️ ET ▪️ (crown) REGINA, obverse GRATIA ▪️. reverse HI (crown) ▪️ REX ▪️ ET ▪️ (crown) REGINA, obverse GRATIA. reverse HI ▪️ (crown) REX ▪️ ET (crown) ▪️ REGINA, obverse GRATIA. reverse HI ▪️ (crown) REX ▪️ ET ▪️ (crown) REGINA, obverse GRATIA.
