Henry III, penny

This is the second coin that John Garner sent in. It’s another hammered silver penny but this one dates from the reign of Henry III.

On the reverse is a voided long cross, so the coin dates between 1247 and 1272. The king holds a sceptre, he has round eyes and there is a pellet at each end of his crown, so this penny belongs to class 5a2. The legend on the reverse reads NIC OLE ONL VND, so Nicole is the moneyer and London the mint/

Valuation

The edge of the coin is weak in places but it is otherwise in about VF condition. The type, mint and moneyer combination is fairly common so my price range would be no higher than £38 – £45.
