Rose Type 1

A rather small coin, at 13-14 mm,(though thicker and heavier) than? the Maltravers (16-17mm) it replaced. The design is rather similar to the Maltravers with a (plain) inner circle. The obverse design features a chunky crown and sceptres, which lie entirely within the linear circle. The reverse depicts a crowned double rose, with the large rose touching the inner circle. Brass wedge at 12.00 o?clock. Two privy marks are known ? lis and martlet, and may be located at 12.00 (obv.) and 10.00 o?clock (rev.)? Privy marks may be on either, or both, sides. Both marks may appear on the same coin. One issue with lis/lis has no obverse linear circle. Die axis on all Roses is unrotated.

Illustrated? E.147/P.298. pm=lis/none. 1636. (VR) gvf
