Groat of Mary

The finder of this hammered silver coin wished to remain anonymous. It’s a groat of Mary, examples of which turn up very regularly as detecting finds. This one is said to have been found in a paddock.

The obverse is scratched and worn, so I would grade it only Fair. The reverse is about Fine. However, even though its overall state of preservation isn’t good, it is at least intact and the flan isn’t bent.

Valuation

I’ve seen far worse specimens as detecting finds but groats of Mary are fairly common and in its present condition my highest price range on this example would be no higher than £30 – £35.
