An Unusual Late Edward IV London Penny – M.J. Wade

This late Edward IV London penny is of interest for two main reasons. The first is the initial mark which although not at all certain could add to the small corpus of pennies with halved sun-rose initial mark. It shows the obverse legend of known examples. Other candidates for the initial mark are cross and pellet and less likely cinquefoil. The other interesting feature is an unusual engravers error where four similar-sized pellets have been placed in the DON quarter of the reverse.
