Nice coin glad to see someone else posting Hammered English coins. The reverse is an excellent example of the use of ligatured lettering on the pence of Henry III. The Moneyer is Davi shown thus DAV/ION/LVN/DE. Pretty clear on this example but can be quite challenging on some less well preserved examples.
