County: Cambridgeshire

An extremely worn silver coin. The coin weighs 1.9g, has a diameter of 19.4mm and thickness of 0.6mm. The thinness, look and feel of this coin would suggest a hammered rather than milled coin. No legend is even slightly visible on either the obverse or reverse. One side of the flan seems to show the ends of a laureate tie, reverse head profile, forehead and upper nose profile of a head or bust right. It is important to note that the end of the ribbon tie almost touched the edge (or current edge) of the flan, thus allowing no space for a legend. The other side of the flan is worn comp…
