Silver half vintem (10 reis) of Joao III of Portugal (1502-1557) minted between 1538 and 1557.

Silver cur half of a voided long cross penny of Henry III (1216-1272), Class IIIa (1248-1250). The mint is Gloucester and the moneyer is ION.

The legend on the obverse is hENRICVS REX.III, a version which was introduced with Class III, and this combined with the form of the beard (four small pellets on either side of a larger central pellet on the chin) and the lack of a sceptre or hand in the portrait puts it in Class IIIa. The inscription on the reverse reads ION/[ON/GLO]VCE, so it can …

A silver cut half of a voided long cross penny of Henry III (1216 - 1272), Long cross coinage (1247-1272). The half with the moneyer's name is missing, but the obverse inscription begins at 12 o'clock, which indicates that the class belongs to I - III, without the sceptre, and on the reverse the inscription reads /NG/LOV, which suggests the Gloucester mint. The moneyers in Gloucester were ION, LUC/AS, RIC/ARD and ROG/ER, all of whom only minted Classes IIb - IIIc. Because of the spacing of the reverse inscription which splits O from N in the word ON, there would only have been room for…
