Scottish 20 pence piece of Charles I

This is another find that came in from Glyn Peak. It’s a Scottish 20 pence piece of Charles I, examples of which turn up very regularly in England. Over the last 20 years I’ve heard of well over one hundred individual examples as detecting finds. Curiously, I can’t remember being informed about a single specimen being unearthed in Scotland!

I can’t see any of the important distinguishing marks on Glyn’s find but this could be due to weakness in crucial areas. All I can say is that the dies used to strike the coin were made by John Falconer rather than Nichols Briot.

Valuation

Both sides of the coin have been struck off centre but it is otherwise in Fine condition, so my price range would be £30 to £40.
