S2596 broad bust and decorated dress.

26mm, 3g

The first attempt at milled coinage was during the Tudor period, a numismatic milestone.

AVF

 

 

 

 

£135

ELIZABETH I, THREEPENCE, 1562, PHEON MINT MARK, 'Z' USED FOR '2', HIGH GRADE

 

Good portrait with unusual use of 'Z' for '2'.

S2565
20mm, 1.60g 
 
 

Reverse with alternative date mark. Pheon mint mark.

 

 

 

 

   SOLD 

Elizabeth I, Silver Shilling, Escallop, 1584-6

 

Although this has a weak strike or portrait is worn, the legend is unusual as it reads ELIZB instead of ELIZAB! 

The reverse is better. Overall, a well centred and nicely shaped coin.

 

31mm, 5.6g

 

  £60

Elizabeth I, Shilling, Escallop, 1584-6

 

Here the legend is the usual ELIZAB. Scratches to obverse, nice reverse.

Good reverse and well-centred coin.

 

31mm, 5.53g

 

 

  £65

Elizabeth I, Shilling, Martlet, 1560-61

 

Here we have the normal legend of ELIZABETH and second issue, martlet mint mark. Rather scratched (? contemporary vandalism) but still a lovely coin.

Reverse

 

31mm, 6g

 

 

  £55

Elizabeth I Silver Hammered Portcullis Halfpenny, 1602, 7th Issue, 2 mm

Your chance to own one of Britains smallest, and therefore scarcest, tudor coins. At just 11mm (0.14g) it was easily lost and disliked by the people. The '2' is the mint mark and not the denomination. 

Considered good very fine, but with a ragged edge. Scarce.

Ref: S2588, N2017
Prov: Ex TimeLine Auctions and prior to that a Dix Noonan Webb sale. Authenticity guaranteed.
SOLD
