Penny. York. Class C. Tall neck, mullet and broken
annulet by crown. ® Quatrefoil in centre, annulet in two quarters. Spink
# 1785. North 1400. 17 mm. Struck from poor condition dies. The
obverse die shows signs of corrosion. The reverse die is cracked in
several places. The dies are local, rather than made in London. This
could be either an official issue or a contemporary forgery. Note also
annulet in two quarters instead of the usual one. An interesting piece.
