Arriving in my inbox this week was an announcement of the upcoming Spink sale of Ancient, English And Foreign Coins and Commemorative Medals
(London, 1-2 December 2010). The Spink catalogues are always enjoyable to read, with illustrations of a wide array of coins across continents and centuries. Here's just one item that caught my eye.
924 James I, second coinage 1604-19, Rose Ryal, 13.76g, m.m. trefoil over castle both sides,
king crowned seated on throne, portcullis below, rev. shield on rose (cf. Schneider II, 10;
N.2079; S.2613), obverse struck from rusty dies, good very fine, rare
