Bow in reference to Sir Martin Bowes, as upon the coins of Henry VIII.

Swan, also perhaps in reference to the armorial bearings of Sir Marin Bowes; it must however be observed that this mark occurs only in the years 1549 and 1550, and we cannot find the name of Bowes later than the first year of Edward, nor do we find his usual mark, the bow, of a later date.

Ton, indicative of coins struck under the mastership of Throgmorton.

Y, the initial of Sir John Yorke, Master of the Mint.

The bird's head may be that of a falcon or a griffin, both of which were badges of the family of Bullen, and may have been adopted in in compliment to Anne Bullen the unfortunate mother of Edward.

T, or t, may be the initials of Throgmorton or of Tilsworth, both of whom were mint masters.
