A medieval silver Low Countries sterling imitation, probably Maria of Namur (1342-53; Mayhew 357-8), minted at Meraude (Poilvache, Belgium) after c.1344. Ref: Mayhew 1983: 131.
The coin is probably as listed above although the visible inscription is not certainly exactly as listed by Mayhew with two letters before CIART on the obverse hard to read, although neither appears to fit Mayhew's.
