Voided long cross penny of Henry III

This is the last find from the group of three sent in by Alan Reynolds. It’s a voided long cross penny of Henry III. Yes, I know, lots of these have been unearthed by detectorists but any hammered silver coin counts as a good find.

The coin is an example of class 5B2. If the full legend was visible on the reverse then it would read ROB ERT ONC ANT, so Robert is the moneyer and Canterbury is the mint.

Valuation

It has been struck slightly off centre and is weak in places but the face of Henry III stands out very well. This isn’t a scarce coin, so in its present condition I would price it at a modest £30.
