Class 5c penny of Henry III

Michael Young thought that this recent find was a Henry III penny but he wasn’t sure. He said there wasn’t much to go on but if possible he would like to know the mint and gain some idea of its value.

Michael’s find is a class 5c voided long cross penny of Henry III. On the reverse the lettering is visible in only two quarters and reads ONC ANT, so this coin was struck at the mint situated in Canterbury. The area containing the moneyer’s name is flat so I can’t say who was responsible for the issue of this penny.

The head on the obverse is about VF but this side has been struck off centre and is partly flat. The reverse is even further off centre and the only really clear area is within the inner circle.


I’ve not been able to identify the moneyer on this penny and its overall condition leaves a good deal to be desired. On the plus side it is a hammered silver coin but in its present state of preservation my price range would be no higher than £25 to £30.
