Re: Alex's Gallery - An interesting "farthing"

For anyone interested in British coins I just thought I would draw your attention to this interesting "farthing" struck under Charles II.

Re: Alex's Gallery - a hole in one.

It is very difficult to get a decent portrait on these coins so I do not mind the hole at all. Especially since it made the coin more affordable.  ;)

Thanks Steve, these hammered coins are something of a novelty for me, and a refreshing change after collecting Roman coins for more than fifty years.

Another medieval coin for those who have come out the woodwork and admitted that they like them too.  :D

Alex, I don't believe that I came across this thread before (although I have noticed some of the coins that you posted). There are a few of us medievalists who are not lurking in the woodwork who greatly appreciate these coins. Keep them coming! Stkp
