Henry III penny

Here is another coin from Jamie New’s collection of detecting finds. It’s an English hammered silver penny of King Henry III.    

On the reverse the legend reads +LEDVLF ON LVND, so Ledulf is the moneyer and London the mint. The coin has characteristics that mark it out as a class VIIc penny of the voided short cross coinage of Henry III. In the Standard Catalogue the class, which is fairly common, is listed as number 1356C.

Valuation

The coin has some scratches on both sides but is otherwise in Fine condition. Pricewise, I’d say £22 – £25.
