ok, its not a music thread, but the subject is pretty old, I hope.
I'm sure I have seen on other threads that some catters collect coins, to be specific, Englash hammered silver.
I have asked the guys on Google groups but as this place is allways a mine of information I thought I would ask here as well.
I have with me a short cross english penny which I am sure is either class 4 or 5, which sub class I can only guess.
The portrait is very poor so I can't get many clues from that. The legend on the reverse I am fairly sure is "henri on lund", there is one pellet visible on the right side of "on" in the legend and a colon to the left ot the cross pate. This puts it as a class 4b in my books due to the many errors recorded in this class.
Finaly the cross which should be voided on the reverse looks quite solid with no pellets at the ends of the arms, this raises my suspsision that this may be a forgery, contemporary or otherwise.
Does anyone one have any ideas as to the correct identification of this coin. I am away from home so most of my books are not available, I only have my CR Wren guide with me.
