This early Tudor period groat was found in Cumbria by Andy Krzykowski. Andy had already identified it as a London groat of Henry VII but wanted further details and a valuation.
On the obverse King Henry wears a crown with one jewelled and one plain arch. On the reverse there is a slipped trefoil before CIVI but no other marks in the inner legend. The lettering is ornate on both sides so this groat is an example of class IIIc. In the Standard Catalogue it is listed as number 2199.
This groat is well struck and in VF condition. Additionally, it has attractive surfaces and good eye appeal. It would not be out of place in a first class collection of Tudor period coins. Prices are not as strong as they were only a few months back but a keen collector should still be willing to pay around £250 in order to acquire this delightful Henry VII groat.
