This note presents an unusual mis-struck Limerick halfpenny of 1691 on a March 1689/90 shilling. Though only half of each of the overstrike and host coin is visible, it is still possible to identify all four dies in the Wither & Withers Gunmoney corpus and die study.
Some gunmoney-related evidence in French diplomatic and military correspondence, 1689-90 – Oisín Mac Conamhna
The purpose of this note is to highlight some evidence of relevance to gunmoney in French correspondence of 1689-90, particularly that of Antoine de Mesmes, the Comte d’Avaux, the French ambassador to the Irish court of James II. Reference is also made to correspondence held in French state, military, and naval archives, which was published in the 1980s.
