Possible Irish hammered albeit broken

Post by muddy mick »

Yesterday when I found the 3 hammereds I was convinced this was Irish, though a friend thought Henry III, though I wasnt convinced, knotalot has also suggested Irish, sure I can see the triangle and what looks like blo or dlo on the reverse, any help would be appreciated

Hopefully I will get to the bottom of this, I do love a mystery, thoughts from a Facebook group,,,,,

Certainly purports to be an Irish, a single lined triangle, possibly a sub class, all classes are for Dublin with two moneyers Richard
and David, now the anomalies, bust doesn't appear to have neck lines or shoulders, the shape of the S (HENRICV(S) can vary in a few cases but is outside the three known varients, the hand holding the Septre is a bit weird ( long fingers) and REX is not really there, appears another letter has been inserted after X? the lettering on the reverse quarter is not as should be for mint or either moneyer as
far as I can see. Maybe a continental imitation ? or a local forgery? , purposeful break? , who knows. All in all my take reading H3, a very nice interesting piece.
