‚ÄčThe Long Cross Pennies of Henry III 

Class 6 (Edward I)

Jon  (John de Burnedisse)


No coins minted after Class 5g were present in the Brussels Hoard.  Class 6 coins were rare until the discovery of about 1900 examples from Bury in the 1969 Colchester Hoard. This one is typical of the crude facial features characteristic of the class.
