Throughout the Henry III long cross series one often sees the capital letter “H” used for an “N”. This usage is not consistent, in that many coins have a mixture of “H” and “N” in their reverse legends. In this small study I have analysed the proportions of different usages of H/N for several mints and moneyers. This has allowed various conclusions to be made about the die preparation process, and has highlighted some rarer lettering combinations that collectors may wish to look out for. I would very much welcome feedback on the observations and conclusions presented.
