Silver penny of Henry III, short cross class 7a, moneyer Terri of London, 2 pellets at irregular points in reverse legend, weight 1.19g, neat piercing near edge at 7 o'clock (obverse), 1218-22

Notes:


The coin has been pierced, indicating a secondary function which would normally indicate that it should be considered as potential Treasure (under Treasure Act 1996). However, coins dating after AD1180 with similar piercings are also known in hoards of currency, suggesting that such objects could re-enter circulation as coins. It therefore cannot be said with confidence whether this particular object was regarded as a coin or as another type of object at the time that the coin was deposited.
