Richard II AD 1377 to 99 Penny of York


Richard II Early Type I Penny of York. Obv: Crowned bust facing. Cross on breast +(RI)CARDVSxxREXxxAnGLIE (Double Saltire Stops) Rev: Long Cross quartered with trefoil of pellets - Quatrefoil in centre. (x CIVI)/TAS/EBOR/ACI - Saltire before Civi ?. Mint York. Previously attributed by me to Edward III but re-examination of the Obverse legend shows the lower third of the letter C before A rather than the W which would have been in that position had it been Edwardus. Also the straight band to the Crown is particularly indicative of a coin of Richard. Purvey Type IA3 or 4 North 1329 - SCBC 1690 Bought eBay Feb 2011. Wt 1.16gms
