Elizabeth I Milled Silver Sixpence, 1562, Star Mint Mark
S2596 broad bust and decorated dress.
The first attempt at milled coinage was during the Tudor period, a numismatic milestone.
Elizabeth I, Silver Shilling, Escallop, 1584-6
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.
Elizabeth I, Shilling, Escallop, 1584-6
Here the legend is the usual ELIZAB. Scratches to obverse, nice reverse.
Good reverse and well-centred coin.
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.
