I registered for the Henry III newsletter ages ago. Can’t remember why! Anyway Rob Page from the British Numismatic Society is desperate for photos of decent Henry III long cross coins in VF or better condition. He is especially looking for Class 7 (posthumous) ones. Got any?
And whilst you here why not look at the coin gallery they have? It’s got some stunning examples of British coins from the Iron Age to the Stuarts
All details are below. Thank you, in advance!
Henry III - Appeal for Images
Images are needed and would be appreciated - requirements are:
a) Any scarce or rare Henry III long cross coins in VF or better condition - needed for the BNS Coin Gallery
b) Any images of Henry III posthumous class 7 coins - in any condition - needed for research purposes and publication of results in the BNS Research blog, as well as illustrating selected examples on the BNS Coin Gallery.
If you can help out with any high resolution images then please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org - and please let me know whether you'd like your name acknowledging or would prefer to remain anonymous.
It's been a while since I sent out the last newsletter despite having a lot of spare time during lockdown. However I've been busy working on the BNS Coin Gallery which is becoming a useful resource - take a look at https://www.britnumsoc.org/index.php/gallery You'll find the Henry III section, which is still under construction, here.
Also occupying my time has been the writing of a few new articles for the BNS Research Blog (index) including having just started a series of articles on class 7, hence the request above. Class 7 coins are rare, with may less than 2 dozen Renaud of London coins still in existence. The commonest class 7 coins are those of Phelip of London, however they probably only number less than fifty. So, it would be really helpful if any readers would kindly send me images of any of these London mint coins, or any of the very rare class 7 coins from Durham or Bury. Thanks in advance...
