Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A silver medieval penny of Edward I, dating to the period AD 1280-1289. EDW R ANGL DNS HYB, forward facing bust, CIVITAS LONDON reverse type with solid long cross, three pellets in each quadrant. Classes 3g-4a2 inclusive. There is a small chip at 7 o'clock, this is possibly due to a piercing being torn. The diameter of the piercing before it tore is 1.44mm.

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.
