Silver coin. Voided long cross cut halfpenny of Henry III (1216-1272), possibly class 3 issue of 1248-1250, and at all events an issue of 1247-1279; possibly moneyer Ieremie, and, if so, York mint; worn and bent. However, the obverse bears a feature resembling a faint sceptre, which would vitiate the foregoing ascription to class 3.

Obverse description: [Facing bust], possible sceptre left; legend lost to wear

Reverse description: Voided long cross, three pellets in each angle.

Reverse inscription: [--]/IERE/(---)
