Description

Henry VII (1485-1509), Groat, first period, London mint, class I, mintmark rose on obverse only (1485-87), facing crowned bust with open crown, crosses by neck type, legend surrounds HENRIC 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, 2.87g (S.2194; N.1703; Potter & Winstanley 1b).

Struck on a marginally irregular flan with even cabinet toning across all surfaces, both sides. Legends legible, portrait under closer scrutiny considerably well detailed with some metal flaws and the mildest of doubling, all from the initial strike. Reverse, clear and concise, the irregular flan leaving some deficit in the outer script. Very fine, rare.

Ex Nigel Tooley, bought 2002
