LMCC Addenda Page Revised

 

We have recently updated the LMCC addenda page to include the new London mint coins discovered in the Wold Newton hoard and a number of other new coins submitted by collectors. The new entries are repeated below for ease of identification.

Others:

 

7.04.016 A second example has come to light that is a double die match to the LMCC reference coin – metrics and image awaited. Private collection.

 

7.04.028.5 CONSTANTINVS P AVG Bust F3 (y) left – metrics and image awaited. Private collection.

 

8.04.009 Included but not illustrated in LMCC, as an image was not available at the time for the reference example. This image is from a second example (21 mm 3.1 g 12h). Phil Edmonds collection.

 

8.09.003 (2) An example of this type with the CLARITAS REIPVBLICE reverse legend variation(20 mm 3.3 g 12h). Phil Edmonds collection. This is from a different die than 8.09.002 (2) and the example mentioned in the footnote to 8.09.004. Therefore perhaps not a simple die cutting error. These were the first coins struck at London with this reverse legend so they may have been early examples where the instructions to the die cutters were unclear or wrong. A mistake corrected for later dies and issues.
