The images of this pair of hammered silver coins were sent in by Mike Ruczynski but they were unearthed by his brother, John. A full ID and a valuation on both were requested.Both coins are London halfgroats of Edward III, which were struck during this king’s fourth coinage (1351-61).
The first looks to have the initial cross of series C but the letter R is the type used during series D. Overall, the coin would grade about Fine so my valuation figure would be £30.
The initial mark on the second halfgroat is a crown, so this is an example of series F. On the obverse there are a few scratches but this side is otherwise in Fine condition. The reverse is better so my price range for this coin would be £35 to £40.
