Henry VII gold Angel, muled mint marks

Henry VII (1485-1509), Angel, class III, St Michael killing dragon with lance, both feet on dragon, beaded circle surrounding, initial mark pansy on obverse (1495-8), escallop on reverse (1493-95), rosette stops abbreviated Latin legend both sides, I of DI struck over sideways I, hEnRIC* DI* GRA* REX AnGL *Z* FRA rev ship sailing right, quartered shield upon hull, cross above, h to left, rose to right, PER* CRVCE'* TVA'* SALVA* nOS* XPE'* REDEm'*, 5.10g (Schneider -; N.1696; S.2183). Some residual dirt around beaded circle and legend, three small digs over dragon's head, the earlier reverse die showing the characteristic signs of rust, otherwise good very fine and very rare with the use of two different mint marks of consecutive periods of use.

The abbreviated Latin legends translate as on the obverse "Henry by the Grace of God, King of England and France and Lord of Ireland"; and on the reverse "By Thy cross, save us, O Christ, our Redeemer". This coin utilises two different time periods of dies, the escallop mint mark on reverse being an earlier die than the mint mark pansy on the obverse, a very unusual occurrence and one that is not represented in the Schneider Collection.
