Groat of Edward III

This is the second coin from a small group that came in from John Wells. It’s a groat of Edward III, which has surfaces that make it look as if it has never been in the ground.

The coin has a square initial cross at the start of the legends, annulet stops on both sides, the letter R has a wedge-shaped tail , all the lettering is Lombardic and the inner legend on the reverse reads CIVI TAS LON DON. All the characteristics just mentioned point towards this groat being struck at London during series C of the fourth coinage of Edward III.  

Valuation

On both sides there is slight weakness in the legends but the coin has eye appeal and to a collector it should be worth close to £180.
