Henry VIII Half Groat

This find was sent in by Pete Husky Anning, who knows what it is but he wanted to know what I thought the item was worth. This is a coin of Henry VIII but this is a second coinage half groat of Canterbury. The mint mark is a Catherine wheel and the letters beside the shield on the reverse (C D) stand for Thomas Cranmer, who was created Archbishop of Canterbury in 1533.

Valuation

It’s slightly weak on the shield on the reverse but is otherwise in about VF condition; this should be worth £100-120 to a collector
