Object type: COIN HOARD
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two silver groats of Henry VII, both struck at London between 1507 and 1509. Both have little wear and were found within 15 feet of one another. These coins are uncommon as stray finds and the presence of two so close together surely indicates that they comprise part of a hoard lost or deposited in the area and subsequently dispersed by agricultural activity. The lack of wear suggests that loss or deposition took place not many years after the coins were struck, probably circa 1510-25. Catalogue Henry VII, groat, Tower, pheon initial mark (North 1747), 1507-9, weight 2.95g Henry…
