Edward IV, Yorkist King First Reign of 1461-1470

London, Sun mintmark. Light coinage of 1464/5-1470. This scarce coin differs from earlier Quarter-nobles mainly by its new obverse, which shows a tressure of 8 arches around the royal shield, with a bold “E” above and symbolic sun and rose marks to the sides.

On a full flan with nearly complete legends, central images evenly struck and well detailed, with delightful old-gold toning.
