An incomplete silver penny of Edward I. Long cross reverse with three pellets in each quadrant and central quatrefoil. (AD 1272-1307). York mint.

There are portions of the coin missing between 3-7 O'clock.

Notes:

The initial records and photographic images were taken at Bishop Burton 2011 Rally. We understand that the images fall below our usual standards, this however is due to the difficult conditions (predominantly the lack of ideal lighting conditions) under which they were taken. The recorder has done what is possible to raise the quality of the images before attaching them to the records.

As these finds were recorded at the Bishop Burton 2011 Rally, the individual recording them onto the PAS Database has not seen them and was not the initial identifier. Therefore for more in-depth, secondary identification, only the paper records written at the Rally and the photographic images were available to assist.
