Henry III short cross penny

Post by fabio961 » Sun Sep 16, 2018 4:04 pm

Hi all

found today, I'm quite sure of the identification as the hammy is in really good condition for once. I believe it to be a Henry III short cross penny.

obverse I see HENRICVS
reverse: RICARD.ON.LVN (moneyer Ricard of London Mint)

not sure of the class though.

anyone confirm my ID attempt?
