Description

Edward IV, (1471-83), second reign, Groat, type XVb, London mint, facing crowned bust, trefoils on cusps, roses by bust, mintmark pellet in annulet both sides (1473-77), legend surrounds EDWARD DI GRA REX ANGL Z FRANC. Rev, long cross fourchee, trefoil of pellets in angles, reads POSVI DEV A DIVTOR E MEVM, inner script CIVITAS LONDON, 2.55g (S.2097; N.1631; B&W XVb).

Darkly toned with an off centre strike, portrait pleasing with some softness in parts of hair, roses either side of King concise as is the case with both mintmarks. Legends generally legible, classed and recorded as rare to very rare by other leading auction houses. An academic example of a seldom seen type. Bold fine, notably rare.

Ex. James King, bought 2001
