Reference Sellwood --- (cf. type 63), Shore ---
Comments From my personal collection, ex-Persic Gallery. A remarkable coin, of the silver type but in copper. Sellwood types 63.7-16 are similar, but of debased silver and, more important, with blundered legends. This coin has a good legend, very readable all around.
