Friday Update: 29 July 2022


One of our reader’s, Shaughn Tyreman, has a knack of finding rare cut halfpennies. In September last year he sent in a cut halfpenny of Henry Murdac. That was a really interesting and unusual find. He has now found another cut halfpenny from the reign of Stephen which is even better.

We have an early look at Noonans sale of a collection of groats which provides a great illustration of the changes in its design, or lack of them for many years, that took place since it was introduced by Edward I.

In PAS finds is a medieval mount of a dog biting its own tail. The same image can be found on a cross on a Scottish island and a 1970’s Irish postage stamp. So, what does it mean? Also, a Roman brooch of National importance and an unusual Anglo-Saxon coin with a “keyhole” on it.
