ЄDWΛRD DЄI GRΛ RЄX ANG, crowned facing bust / CIVI TΛS LOn DOn, cong cross pattée; trefoils in quarters. Blunt, Edward, pl. 12 (boar’s head im); Stewart, Dies, p. 135; North 1641 (Edward IV); SCBC 2147. Toned, some ghosting on obverse. VF. Mint mark and king’s name clear. A penny of the considerable historical interest and the highest rarity.

We believe this is the first example of an Edward IV/V Penny to ever appear at auction. Stewartby recorded only one example in the Hunterian Museum and noted that another, reported to have been in the collection of Raymond Carlyon Britton, was not traceable.
