Friday Update – 10 September 2021

Editorial

This week, 8 readers finds include a cut halfpenny of Stephen, issued by Henry Murdac. There is the story of this colourful character from history. PAS finds include a badge of Anne of Brittany – and how this illustrates how Brittany became part of the kingdom of France.

DNW’s auction results showed mixed results with a Henry V farthing selling for ten times its estimate but a couple of star lots failing to sell.
