Class R3/90

ID 10 Timms Collection

 

The coin in this class has only a chevron containing a pellet behind the head, there does not appear to be an annulet. There is possibly a symbol and a pellet above the chevron behind the ear. There are two pellets forming the lips. The back line of the beaded pyramidal neck is poorly defined. The runes read EPA, there is a pellet in the bottom void of the M. There is a pellet by the A rune, this may be the bottom part of the rune or could be a free standing pellet. The reverse is a typical R3 one with beaded standard, four corner angled lines and four mid point unbarred crosses pommėe. Inside the standard are two ”L’s” and two angled lines around a central annulet.

Class R3/100 has 4 coins in it. The head has two crown lines above and a chevron above an annulet behind it. Three exergual lines are visible below the head. Runes in front of the head read GEPA. There is a pellet within the bottom void of the M, see below left. The X is smaller than the other runes. All runes and symbols end in a pellet (Pommėe). The two pellets forming the lips are quite prominent. The beaded pyramidal neck is not well formed. The reverse has a typical R3 configuration, it also has a pellet in the central annulet.  Unbarred crosses on the outside of the standard are typical of the R3 on the reverse of the coin, See below right.

 

 

 

Class R3/110

ID 9 Timms Collection

 

This coin is registered with the Fitzwilliam as EMC 2017.0359. There is an upward pointing chevron behind the head, below the chevron is an annulet which has three pellets behind and below it. A double crown line is above the head. The head has a large pointed nose to the front of which is what could be either a pellet or the very bottom of an X rune, I think that it is a pellet. The bottom rune, the  A rune, is either very poorly formed or missing, there is however a small mark below the "P" rune. The neck has two triangles of beaded neck, one within another. There do not appear to be any exergual lines. Although being offset to the left and top the reverse has what appears to be a typical format of symbols and pellets. Die axis 0°.
