A Search into Rarity (2) – The Testoons of Henry VII – Gary Oddie, David Holt and Colin Pitchfork

In 1962 W. J. W. Potter and E. J. Winstanley provided the most recent study of the profile coinage of Henry VII, including the issue of testoons in 1504. Whilst adding provenances of known specimens, CP expanded upon this list and identified a new reverse die in 1968. This short note revisits the die study, removing one obverse die from the corpus and providing illustrations of each of the known obverse and reverse dies and an example of every known die combination.
