Richmond Type 10a Oval

Legends start at 7.00 o’clock. Another similar type to 8, (however some pieces have only 8 jewels) but now the privy mark is on both sides – at the end of the legends. The only privy mark used is a crescent. Normally 6 harp strings, though one exceptionally rare issue has 7. Die axis rotated. Pellet between sceptre handles.

Illustrated  E.117d/P.- 7 strings. 8 obv.jewels. c.1625-c.31. (EXR) ragged aef (w/w)

N.B. This piece from a hoard found on a tidal fore-shore. Hence the appellation ‘water-washed’.
