Short cross penny - [IOH]AN ON LUND - ID help please !

Recommended Posts

Hello all !

I'm struggling to identify this rather badly struck short cross penny. The mint is obviously London, and I think the moneyer is IOHAN as the final two letters of his name appear to be "AN".

The portrait looks like a class 5c (John) to me - but there are no IOHAN ON LUND coins of John, just of Henry II, and the king's hairstyle doesn't look like any of the Henry II types. 

Anyone got any clues ?

Iohan struck coins under King John at London mint in class 5b1. He ceased at that mint in roughly 1206 and no further coins after 5b1 where struck at London in his name.

Its not Iohan. Its Adam. It will be a class 7 coin of Henry III.
