mary-1a.jpg
S.2492 Mary I5 viewsGroat of Mary I (1553-1558)
First issue (1553-1554)
Mintmark: Pomegranate
O: MARIA D G ANG FRA Z HIB REGI
R: VERITAS TEMPORIS FILIA

Mary, daughter of Henry VIII by his first wife Catherine of Aragon, is a controversial figure in English history because of her religious persecutions against Protestants. She gets the moniker "Bloody Mary" because under her watch several hundred Protestants were burned at the stake. Mary's husband, Philip II of Spain, was also unpopular in England. Mary died childless and her sister Elizabeth undid pretty much all of her political and religious changes.

Coins of Mary take two flavors- in just her name prior to her marriage to Philip, and after 1554 with Philip's name. This coin belongs to the earlier issue. These coins frequently demonstrate large scratches across the queen's face, done intentionally as Mary was not liked in her time. This particular example is remarkable free of surface marks.

S. 865
O: +EDILRED REX
R: +EANRED
Motif: 1/1

Variety with a pellet in one quadrant of the obverse central cross. Similar pellet-in-single-cross-qudrant is sometimes encountered on later Saxon coinage and may indicate a certain ecclesiastical mark, but it is rarely found on stycas.

S.872 Aethelred II (Cynemund?)23 viewsIrregular styca of Aethelred II, king of Northumbria (first reign) 841-844
Moneyer: Cynemund

S. 872
O: +EDILRED RE (retrograde)
R: +CVNIMVND (blundered)

Not sure whether to call this a coin of Cynemund or a blundered irregular styca of the c.850 period. It may be a combination of a serviceable Aethelred II obverse die with a nonsensical blundered reverse die.

Eanred is one of Aethelred's more prolific moneyers. He also coined for Redwulf. He is not to be confused with King Eanred, who was Aethelred's father and predecessor.
