Toned with light porosity perhaps from excavation in water, struck a little short of flan, otherwise very fine, unusual with the misspelt FRANC as FRANE.

The abbreviated Latin legends translate as on the obverse "Edward by the Grace of God, King of England and France, Lord of Ireland "; and on the reverse "But Jesus, passing through the midst of them, went His way" taken from the Bible.

This coin was struck in the earlier period before the Treaty of Bretigny when Edward III laid claim to the French throne in the Latin titles upon the coinage.
