If you weren't expecting this upload, then I imagine it will come as a nice surprise. And the reason why I'm presenting these coins to you know it is that I finally managed to convince Richard to let go of some Rare British Coins he had - imagine where - that's right, on his desk.
I want you to have the chance to take them home with you before Richard has any last-minute regrets... As always, the early bird catches the worm.
c.1272-1275. Moneyer ION, Class 6. An excellent example of this fascinating early issue of Edward I transitional portrait displaying features of the earlier Henry III and the later, typical Edward I portrait. Wonderful icy tone, Good Very Fine and Rare.
