FOREWORD

THIS catalogue lists the most valuable and comprehensive collection of coins of Edward III ever offered for sale. Gordon Doubleday’s interest in the reign goes back for more than forty years, and his collection has increased steadily over this period; stimulated from time to time by events which have caused his cabinet to attain world-wide recognition.

The most important landmark was his purchase in 1950 of all the available gold coins from the collection of the late Dr. L. A. Lawrence through the consideration of the doctor’s numismatic executors, and the offices of the present cataloguers. However, an important event had occurred before this in 1940, when the Bredgar Hoard (N.C. 1947, pp. 160- 170) was unearthed conveniently near Doubleday’s old home in Kent, and he subsequently was able to purchase a few coins from it. During the last twenty years or so Mr. Doubleday has been most fortunate in being given the first offer of coins from the specialist collections of Messrs. E. J. Winstanley, D. Mangakis and W. J. W. Potter. He was also able to acquire many pieces from the Raymond Carlyon-Britton collection, and in the sale room from the C. A. Whitton, L. A. Lawrence, V. J. E. Ryan and R. C. Lockett collections.

The catalogue has followed Lawrence’s ‘“‘Coinage of Edward III from 1351-1377” in layout, and the coins are listed under group, denomination, and mint respectively. The gold coins are offered in single lots which are all illustrated, by denomination rather than in lot order, so that future reference to dies may be made easier. Every gold coin has been carefully checked with the British Museum collection so that the Lawrence numbers given are as accurate as possible. This applies particularly to the Pre- Treaty and Transitional issues, for the later series contain so many similar dies that it is difficult to ascribe a specific number to some of them, as reference to Lawrence will show. Cataloguing the silver coins so thoroughly would make for far too much repetition, apart from the time factor, and relatively few of the silver coins have been illustrated in the catalogue, bearing in mind that the British Numismatic Society has already recognized the importance of recording them and has had them all photographed with the aid of the Schneider Fund. Prints are available and may be ordered from the cataloguers or the auctioneers at £17.00 per set (29 pairs). Cheques should be made payable to the British Numismatic Society. At a later date individual prints will be available at 60p a pair.

Undoubtedly the great strength of the collection lies in the extensive number of mules contained in it, by which the whole coinage of the period was originally put into sequence. Assessing the rarity of specialist pieces in a collection such as this is not easy, and in particular the great rarity and historic significance of some of these mules. ‘The problem is aggravated by the fact that many coins have been mis-catalogued in the past. J. J. North’s “English Hammered Silver Coinage’ gives illustrations of the initial crosses and lettering, and tabulates for easy reference the differences

between the numerous issues. Lawrence’s work on the reign from 1351 was published originally in the Numismatic Chronicle 1926, pp. 417-469; 1929, pp. 106-168; 1932, pp. 96-174; and 1933, pp. 15-79: and later in 1937 with D. F. Allen’s supplement in a book which is now, unfortunately, hard to obtain. Also published in the Numismatic Chronicle are Potter’s papers on the silver (N.C. 1960, pp. 137-181 and 1962, pp. 201-204) and gold (N.C. 1963, pp. 107-128 and 1964, pp. 305-318) which make useful comment on Lawrence’s work; sometimes, but not always, making for a

much easier understanding of some of the problems of this complicated reign.

It has been found hardly possible, on account of space, to give all the pedigrees. The gold coins marked + are from the Lawrence collection and the provenances of the silver can be learned from Doubleday’s tickets, which are in themselves an exercise in neatness.

Lawrence illustrated many of his own specimens when writing his book, and Potter invariably used his own coins when illustrating his articles, so it is no wonder that many of Doubleday’s coins will already be found to have been illustrated in other works.

Many years of careful searching was necessary to bring together the four matching Roberts cabinets in which the collection now offered was contained: and finally Mr. Doubleday admits to feeling deeply the loss of his friend Mr. Albert Baldwin, with whom he associated so closely during his years of collecting Edward HI.

1 Quarter-noble, oby. shield in tressure of six arches (as against eight arches of the Post-1351 issues), EDWAR REX ANGL Z FRANC D HYB, inverted apostrophe stops, rev. floreate cross, L in centre, tressure of single line only, double saltire stops, broad plain lettering both sides, 33-6 grains (N.1109; S.898). A little bent, extremely fine and excessively rare, perhaps the finest of the known specimens (No. 2 of the four listed by Potter); ex Lockett (1224).

Third Period (1346-51) (128-6 grains to the noble)

2+ Noble, obv. king in ship with bowsprit behind forecastle, ED/WwaR D GRA REX ANGL Z FRANC DNS HyYB, normal lettering with chevron- barred A, double saltire stops, rev.

The coin does not appear to have been clipped and, as the piercing could not account for a loss of 11 grains, it is suggested by Lawrence (pp. 7-8, notes) and Potter (pp. 113-16) that this coin, together with Potter No. 6, was struck in accordance with the order of 1351, i.e. 120 grains to the noble, from heavy dies.
