Henry V halfpenny - class A or C ?

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

Recently picked up this hammered halfpenny. I'm pretty sure it's Henry V due to the annulets on either side of the crown; wrong portrait style for Henry IV. 

Can't decide if it's class A (emaciated bust, rare) or class C though. I'm leaning towards class A because the annulets don't appear to be broken, and the portrait style seems different to class C coins I've seen photographed online. Anyone know of a photographed class A specimen to confirm ?

Both look broken to me.

Looking at it again in hand the right annulet looks broken - the left one looks closed, the apparent break in the photo seems to come from a weak strike. Do you know if this is a definite diagnostic for these ?
