ARMA :.SEQVAMVR, weight 3.38g(Burns 7, fig.744; S.5370). Toned, with some die clash evident and a little weakness to high points, otherwise very fine and very rare with the five pellet crown band.

The Latin obverse legend translates as "James the Fifth, by the Grace of God, King of the Scottish" and on the reverse as "Let us follow the arms of the Cross."

Typically these coins have the seven pellet crown band of which four sub-varieties exist; Burns places the five pellet band late in the sequence of varieties.
