Workflow status: Awaiting validation
Silver Irish penny of Edward IV (1461-1483), Light "Cross and Pellets" coinage dating from 1473-1478, Group VI, mintmark rosette (looks more like daisy with rounded petals), Drogheda mint with a pellet on either side of the crown and a larger pellet to the right side of the neck and a possible rosette to the left. The coin is clipped so that only parts of the legends survive and it has since broken into three pieces. The reverse has a plain cross so the closest match in Spink (2002) on page 135, is no.6374.
