ID Challenge No 6 (10-13/10/18)

Post by thefiggis » Tue Oct 09, 2018 9:46 pm

This is an occasional series of threads designed to get an ID on an item, but with a difference. Here, you will have the opportunity to offer your opinion but you won't be influenced by other views as you won't be able to see them. The thread will be locked and you will have three days to submit your ID by using the ID Challenge form (link below). At the end of the allotted time the responses will be collated and put into a now re-opened thread for discussion.

The reason for the challenge format is to give everybody a chance to do their own research and come up with an idea without outside influence, the need to get in first, or indeed feeling that there's no need to offer an ID because someone else has already done it. Everyone is on an equal footing.

While we do of course learn from other people (and long may that continue) and the ID section will continue to run as normal,there's nothing like your own research to give a better, fuller understanding and this series should help us all with that.

So, we hope you'll enjoy the ID Challenge and that you get a lot out of it. You have three days to submit your ideas so no rush; take your time and if you change your mind then just submit another form.
==================== Start Wednesday 10-10-18
Thread opens for discussion: after 5.00pm on Saturday 13-10-18

PLEASE NOTE that this coin has not been formally identified so there's no point in asking what the "answer" is at the end. The "answer" is whatever the concensus is and if you don't agree, then say so and discuss it ::g

I`ll have a guess at Henry 111 class 5,the mint and moneyer is a really hard one.
All this is a totally new game to me im only detecting a few months or so it would be nice to have at least a correct partial id at this stage.
Now back to researching for the mint and moneyer for me.]

Luckily I got the monarch right ... but only by virtue of the fact that the Henry III's that I've seen all have goggle eyes... I would otherwise profess to have zero knowledge.

I'm still a duffer at this, but I'm learning that there are clear clues on Henry III coins.

1. It's a voided long cross, which were minted from 1247 till 1279, covering parts of the reigns of Henry III and Edward I.

2. In this particular case you can see his regnal number "III" in the third quarter of the legend after "REX".

There are of course many other indicators to determine the type (sceptre or no sceptre, for example) but the above are a couple of things I look for initially.

As well as OG's excellent link, Henry III Penny Identification is a good, simple site to get pointers from. Perhaps follow the process though using the above coin to see how it works?
