One thought on “Elizabeth I, 1562 Threepence, New Obverse Die – Adrian Curry

  1. I have just had a closer look at the obverse picture of your coin and compared it with Dave Greenhalgh’s catalogue. To me this looks like a DIG 9ii shown on page 29. It appears that the obverse has been triple struck in two parts of the legend. Following the first striking the “ELIZABET” is restruck slightly anti-clockwise (producing the double TT in LIZABETT) and then the “B REGINA (stop) Pheon” is restruck slightly clockwise (producing BB REGINA (stop) Pheon). This final strike obliterates most of the E of ELIZABETH with the mm Pheon. In all other details, this looks like a DIG 9ii to me.
