Charles I 1646 Newark Halfcrown

Charles I (1625-49), silver Newark siege Halfcrown, 1646, Royal crown, C to left, R to right, denomination below in Roman numerals, beaded border both sides, rev. three line inscription and date, OBS: / NEWARK / 1646, weight 14.86g (Brooker 1222; Bull 688; N.2638; S.3140A). Toned, neatly plugged below the date, otherwise very fine.

As the new year at that time did not commence till the 25th March, the 1646 dated coins could really only have been issued from the 25th March till the 6th May maximum when Newark surrendered. Though issue of 1646 coins was probably for a slightly shorter time than this in reality, perhaps only for 40 days or less, a very short-lived final siege issue.

Provenance:

Ex J B Spurgin, Glendining, 14th January 1944, lot 67 part.

Ex Willis Collection, part I, Glendining, 5th June 1991, lot 354.
