Quarter noble of Edward III

Roger Field asked for a definite ID on this hammered gold coin. Roger knew it was a quarter noble of Edward III but was uncertain about the exact type.

On the obverse there is no mark before the king’s name and no French title in the legend. On the reverse there is a treaty type X in the legend and a fleur de lis in the centre. These and other characteristics point towards this quarter noble being struck during the treaty period. (1361-69). The type is listed in the Standard Catalogue as number 1510.

The coin is in near VF condition but has an area of unsightly damage on both sides. It appears to have been grasped by something and then wrenched away from it. This, noticeable defect would have a significant impact on its possible commercial value.
