4 thoughts on “An Interesting Re-cut Penny Reverse Die for Early Edward II – D. I. Greenhalgh

  1. An interesting coin and a type that we all live in the hope of finding. It appears that the die has been re-cut or letters over-struck into the die rather than over struck on the coin which would of course be a lot less tidy, so I would think that London was what was intended and where it was issued from.

    • We know that dies were sometimes sent from London to Canterbury and back again, when there was a need at Canterbury ( the class 6b Cant comes to mind)

  2. I note with interest that the coin in the picture has a colon after the “B”. I have five Ed 1 Coins with colon/triplon after the B. Do you know of any recent research about colon/triplon coins? Do you also know of someone who could give me advice about a class 4 Robert de Hadeleie coin I have just purchased?

  3. A lot of research was undertaken by Paul and Bente Withers for their book ‘The Galata guide to pennies of Edward I & II’. For your RDH coin I would suggest putting a photograph on the Facebook group English Hammered and Early milled coins. There are very knowledgeable hammered specialists and dealers regularly posting on that group
