Edward III Series E Groat - Mint London (LAL 58/18)



Edward III Pre-Treaty Series E Groat
Obv: Crowned bust facing within tressure of nine arches. Fleurs on cusps except over crown.
+CDWARD'D'G'RCX'ANGL'Z FRANC'D'hyB'
No stops - but apostrophe contraction marks.
C's for E's in Edward & Rex.
Rev: Long Cross quartered with trefoil of pellets
+POSVI /o DEVM o A /DIVTOR /EM o MEV /
LON / DON / CIVI / TAS.
Annulet stops in outer legend. Reverse barred N's & 'nicked' V typical of Series E.
LAL 58 (Obv) / LAL 18 (Rev)
Use of Series D lettering (C for E) and reverse barred N's in LONDON are features of early coins of Series E;
on later coins of the Series the unbarred N is more frequently encountered.
Therefore this obverse / reverse combination marks this coin out as a very interesting example of an early Series E Groat.
The Obverse without Annulet Stops is known but with very few recorded by Lawrence.
No examples recorded in the Doubleday Collection.Thus this coin is quite rare.
Bought eBay October 2013 Wt = 4.56g
