A noble was worth 6s. 8d (80 old pence) from that period, so a quarter noble would be worth 1s. 8d (20 old pence).

Depending on which price index you use for the year 1327 it would have been worth anything between 36 - 692. Quite a sum of money, the loser must have been gutted !

Well done again Kev, great find

Trying to get your head around how it was lost, and what fallout the poor sod that lost it faced  :o
Cheers

Great find Kev. It is indeed an Edward III quarter noble. I see you've submitted it to UKDFD so you should get a fuller ID there.
