Durham

- Classes 5g, 6 & 7


 There are no coins of 5d, 5e or 5f known from Durham.  The mint reopened after a temporary closure about 1260 with a new moneyer, Roger, who was later replaced by William.  William 5g coins of Durham are very rare.  Finally, coins from a later moneyer, Robert/Roberd, are known for classes 6 and 7.
