This is another of Damon Ward’s recent finds. It’s a shilling of James I, of which quite a number of types and varieties are known.
James I shillings are catalogued by the coinage, bust and mint mark. However, the only definite thing I can say about this one is that it was struck during the first coinage, as the legend on the reverse starts with EXURGAT. I can’t go any further as neither the bust nor the mint mark show up clearly enough for me to identify.
The obverse is only Fair, the reverse is better but weak in places and there is damage to the edge of this shilling. As I’m always saying, when it comes to the value of any coin the most important factor is the state of preservation. In its present condition my price range on this coin would be no higher than £15 – £20
