1493-1495 Henry VII Hammered Silver Groat Class IIIb MM Escallop

1493-1495 Henry VII Hammered Silver Groat Class IIIb MM Escallop Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A collectable silver hammered Groat of king Henry the Seventh from his facing bust issue. This example is of class IIIb and shows an Escallop mint mark which indicates it was struck in London between 1493 and 1495, about a decade after Henry VII seized the throne at Bosworth Field. The obverse shows the crowned facing bust of the first Tudor king which gives this issue its name. The portrait is enclosed within a tressure of arcs. Later coinage would feature a right facing portrait. The reverse features a long cross with three pellets in each quarter, the concentric legends bearing the working for the city mint of London. In these years Henry, the first Tudor king, was busy dealing with pretenders to his throne and and restarting a conflict in Brittany which he quickly concluded with a peace treaty. Spink 2198A.
