Hi Alan, I'm well thanks; hope you are too?

Well the coin is definitely a Henry III voided long cross, but I'm struggling a bit on the reverse letters.

Any chance of a better image? The reverse is slightly out of focus In parts - maybe it's a bit bent?

I've downloaded the first image and rotated it to see if I can work out what it is.

Looking at the style of the beard (a double row of equal sized pellets), the crown ornament (three dots) and the hair curls (two simple curls with pellets) I think this is a class Vh.

I think I can see on the reverse ONL as the upper quadrant, one might see OLE as the previous three letters, but Nichole apparently didn't strike for 5h....at least in my copy of Wren.

Wow, thanks ever so much for taking the time out to research the reverse, Roland.  It is ever so much appreciated!
