Author's Note: SUPERSEDED BY THE FOURTH EDITION, May, 2016.) An illustrated guide to the known Irish hammered pennies minted under the Yorkist kings (1461- 1485). This book includes a quick index to coin markings, a detailed chronology, and numerous photographs and illustrations. (Note: November 5, 2015: the corresponding Spink numbers from the 2015 edition of SCBC have been added to the book.) Following the author's two editions of Irish Hammered Pennies of Edward IV and Richard III, this book presents seven new varieties and introduces a hitherto unrecognized coinage of the young king Edward V. Jasper Burns is the author of many articles about ancient coins as well as more than thirty books, including Coin Stories (Pietas), Great Women of Imperial Rome (Routledge), Bulla Felix: The Roman Robin Hood (Pietas), and Fossil Collecting in the Mid-Atlantic States (Johns Hopkins University Press). "I consider that you have individually tackled a task that most collectors of Irish coins have avoided or been unable to tackle. And the key to this was your identifying that many of these coins were languishing misidentified as English coins, and this combined with the development of the internet coin market ... has meant that you have been able to assemble a lot of examples and have been able to start identifying them by the portraits and styles so that pieces with virtually no legends can now be properly identified as Irish." - John Stafford-Langanshow more
