A couple of other points please Allectus,
My book doesn't list Iohan as a moneyer for Norwich, is he a rare moneyer for that mint? Also could the NOR mint also be Northampton? I found the coin about 5 miles outside of Northampton and although I respect Norwich and would not like to offend them I would much rather it be a Northampton coin :D

Mint signature 'NOR' is also used for Northampton but, Iohan is not known there. What book are you using?
