John Conduitt Posted June 25, 2022 · Supporter Share Posted June 25, 2022 (edited) Not perfect, but this is my first uncut Richard I penny and first that is undesputedly his. Even though the legend says 'Henricus'. I also have a Richard I cut halfpenny but it's Class 4b, which is listed in Spink as Richard I, but elsewhere as John - that type was struck across the join in their reigns. This, on the other hand, is Class 3, firmly in Richard I's reign. Richard I Class 3ab2 Penny, 1190-1194 London. Silver, 1.40g. Crowned facing bust with sceptre to the left, 7 pearls to crown, whiskers made up of small curls up side of face; ҺЄNRICVS R ЄX. Voided short cross with quatrefoils of pellets in angles within inner beaded circle; WILLELM · ON · LV (moneyer Willelm) (S 1347; SCBI Mass 812, this coin). Ex Professor Jeffrey P Mass. From the Wainfleet (Lincolnshire) Hoard 1990, 380 short cross pennies and 3 halfpennies deposited before 1205. Like John, Richard I's pennies aren't too expensive, so I'm sure many other people have them.
