Replica Anglo-Saxon pennies. Copies made in silver by Period Coins.

Five replica coins made by Trevor Ashmore, of whom Wikipedia says:  "Trevor Ashmore was a part-time coin dealer in the late 1960s and early 1970s. As he was a precision engineer he also made experimental coin dies. In 1972 he set up the company 'Period Coins' in Sutton-in-Ashfield producing replica coins, selling mostly to numismatists in the United States. The business eventually failed but he remained in production of replica coins. After retirement in 1991, he began to produce forged coins commercially again."

These coins, made in silver are cleverly artificially toned.  They used to be deceptive, but now information is available online on all of the Ashmore fakes.  The Seaby nos quoted on the literature sold with the coins are 30 or more years old. The Ceolnoth penny is now quoted at £3,000.  The Offa penny is now £1,850; the Eadwald at £3.750, the Wiglaf £7,500; and the Alfred at £18,500.  Though I have a suspicion that genuine coins might make somewhat more.  THESE ARE REPLICA ITEMS.  We are selling them as replicas.  As they are not marked as replicas they will not be sold to anyone outside the UK, and only with the undertaking that they are not re-sold fraudulently.

In plastic case of issue, lightly scuffed,  The replica coins are EF as struck.
