The Lombardic form of the letter n is spasmodically found on obverses of some early issues of Edward I. This article discusses the rare coins struck in York in class 3f from obverse dies produced locally. Both the Royal mint and the Archbishop’s mint produced such coins, the latter being much rarer. An attempt is made to update the situation regarding the corpus of such coins and the numbers of known dies. A peculiar feature of the Lombardic n, which does not seem to have been discussed before, is pointed out.
