470
Crown, third coinage, mm trefoil over Lis (1623-24), a little weak at the horse's head and as usual, the mint mark, but practically as struck. The 'caparison' and much of the other detail is sharp and the shield-details simply superb & could hardly be bettered. Nicely toned with underlying mint bloom. Very rare in this condition and far superior to the 'Slaney' example. S2664. £3750 to 5000 N/S

476
Gold double crown mm castle (1627-28) VF with an attractive red tone, a couple of small areas of metal deficiency on obverse corresponding to blocks on reverse shield i.e. a striking anomaly. No inner circles either side. £700 to 900 £700.00

Crown, group IV, fourth horsemen, type 4 foreshortened horse, reverse oval shield, mm sun, fine, S2761. £400 to 500 N/S
478
Crown, Tower Mint, mm sun (1645-46) group IV, Type 4, a bold well -struck well centered GVF on an impressively large flan, this coin has a lovely rich old cabinet-tone & maybe deserves to grade a little higher, S2761. £2500 to 3000 N/S
479
1642 half pound, Shrewsbury horseman over arms; rev. three Oxford plumes, representing S2945, but this is a later copy, possibly Victorian, struck in good silver & weighing 64.3g. Not to be confused with an electrotype, the edge looks perfectly contemporary (i.e. 17thC) & the coin has a perfect 'ring'. Very rare & certainly rarer than the original, VF & toned. £550 to 700 N/S

Aberystwyth shilling mm book (1638-42) inner circle on reverse, VF - an attractive, well struck, even example of this rare coin, far better than the Spink plate coin in the standard catalogue. S2882. £1000 to 1500 £900.00
