Rare Edward 1st farthing?

Post by muddy fingers » Fri Jan 11, 2019 2:05 pm

A friend found these coins and was wondering about the farthing. I thought it might be the sort called Class 20a with no inner circle on the Obverse. + ER AN GL AII reverse CIVI TAS LON DON

I would really appreciate some help on that one. Also the cut half is a Henry 111 I presume but I don't know the moneyer.

The reverse on that coin is: LON/DON/IEN/SIS.
A nice find, that's in great condition.
