An incomplete silver medieval penny of Edward IV, epsicopal mint of York. The coin is incomplete as part of the circumference, and therefore the legend, is missing. Carl Savage comments, 'there are no marks by the bust which may represent a sede vacant issue of the second reign (1472-80) or a issue of Archbishop George Neville of the first reign (1464-70). The initial mark is not clear'.
