London, Class 5c3


Class 5c coins are recognised by their oval almond-shaped eyes rather than round ones.  5c1 and 5c2 have a normal central fleur, whereas the central fleur on 5c3 is dis-jointed.  5c1 and 5c2 are distinguished by the shape ofthe letter "R", with 5c1 being a ball-shaped tail (R2), and 5c2 is wedge shaped (R1).


The charts below are based on data for coins in the Brussels Hoard only; minor Numbers of 5c1/2 & 5c2/1 coins have been combined with 5c1 and 5c2 respectively.   The chart show 5c1 to be scarcer than 5c2 and 5c3.    5c obverses muled with 5d reverses are even scarcer.


Some of the moneyers were not active for all 5c sub-classes:

Nicole: 5c1/5c2 only, Ion: from 5c3 onwards,   Walter and Willem : from 5c2 onwards.
