Henry III Long Cross Pennies – Class 2bi – The Coinage of the Lincoln Mint – Ian M. Heavisides & Rob Page

There were three provincial mints that issued pennies of Class 2bi; Lincoln, Northampton and Winchester.
It appears that the class was short-lived, and that the issue of dies was limited. We have taken each mint in turn and examined the dies known to exist, identifying these along with the corresponding reverse dies used with them.
There appear to be four obverse dies of Lincoln for Class 2bi and two further dies that are contemporary forgeries. Included here are copious illustrations and some suggested means of die identification in order to avoid any confusion caused by wear and in some cases re-cutting.
