Henry VII Half Groat

This is another hammered silver coin from the collection built up over many years by Colin Pearson. It’s a profile halfgroat of Henry VII. The coin has mint mark martlet on both sides and on the reverse there are keys below the shield, so with these characteristics it will have been struck at York for the profit of Archbishop Bainbridge. In the Standard Catalogue the type is listed as number 2262. On the obverse the bust of Henry VII is rather weak but the rest of the coin is better than Fine; the reverse would grade Fine. It’s not a rare coin but it turns up far less frequently that the facing bust halfgroats of Canterbury.
