Henry VI, groat

This find came in from a detectorist who preferred to remain anonymous. It’s a groat of Henry VI, which isn’t in very good condition.

The obverse of this coin would grade only Fair. The reverse is weak in one quarter but is otherwise in good Fine condition.

Despite not being in a good state of preservation I can say this groat was struck at Calais during the annulet coinage of Henry VI. Coins of this type must have been struck in very large numbers, for they turn up more frequently than any of the other groats of Henry VI.

Valuation

Had the obverse been better I would have said more but in its present condition I would price this groat no higher than £30.
