- Declaration type, head nearly resembling that on the Bristol shillings, no plume in
front. MM. Plume. (521). Rev. MM. A. and A. also under the date 1645. MB. Mr. Cuff has one
without the MM. on the obv.
- Same as No. 1, but with plume before the face. MB. Rud. Sup. v. 13. Sn. xi. 34, but they
describe the obv. MM. as a Negro's head, which we have never seen. We suspect the plates to have
been taken from the Museum specimen, in which the MM. Plume being blundered has somewhat the
appearance of a head.
- Obv. same as last, rev. dated 1646. Scroll ornament above inscription. MM. on both sides, Plume.
Rud. xxiv. 4. Sn. xi. 35. MB.
- Obv. same dies as the Oxford shillings dated 1644. Rev. MM. obliterated, legend commences at
side, date 1646, an annulet before and after each plume, and each figure, and three below the date.
- Bust to left, crowned, armour, plain collar, ribband and badge, no MM. Rev. Square shield, with
castle above between C. R. MM. Helmet, ornamented cross, plume, and lion rampant. CHRISTO &c.

- Somewhat similar but MM. on rev. boar's head; lion's paws at side and top of shield; C. R. and castle
omitted. Rud. xxvi. 6. Sn. xiv. 10.
- Obv. same. Rev. Oval shield, with drapery garniture, like type 3. with harp MM., decorated with two
lis; a star before and after AVSPICE. MM. Lion rampant and rose composed of dots. BERGNE.
- Obv. same die. Rev. shield similar to last; lozenge after each word of legend. MM. A leaf between
two quatrefoils, each composed of dots. MB. A double struck specimen gives one of the
quatrefoils the appearance of a rose composed of seven dots. Rud. E. 14. (529).
- Bust somewhat similar but much ruder. MM. Lis. Rev. MM. Helmet between two small lis and
pellets. Oval shield, not crowned, like crown type 3. with ton MM. MB. This extremely
resembles Rud. E. 11. the obv. appears to be from the same die; perhaps also the rev. for we are not
sure that the MM. is correctly drawn. (530). The Mus. coin is damaged, and shews only one lis with
- Very similar to preceding, differing only, if the engraving Rud. E. 11. is correct, in having for MM. on
rev. some round object and an ornamented cross.
- Very rude imitation of the Tower shilling with the anchor MM. but no cross under the shield.
MB. See Rud. F. 1.
- Imitation of Tower shilling with Ton. MM. and the inner circle. MB.
- Another from different dies. BERGNE.

- Similar to the Oxford type, dated 1642, (the 4 retrograde), the head imitated from the later York

EBOR under shield. Rud. xxvi. 7. Sn. xiv. 3. MB.
