Ex Lord Stewartby. This coin is best described from Stewartby’s ticket “In the worst possible condition, worn, chipped, cracked, scratched, gilt, has been mounted and in a fire – an abysmal specimen”.  Overall its an affordable example of the first groat minted in Britain, it books at £3,000 for fine and £9,200 for very fine.
