    AEF - Almost Extremely Fine.These large coins were issued in fairly small numbers to mark the accession of Osman III. They are thus rare, but as they were almost all used to make jewellery because of their attractively large size, it is doubly rare to find one unmounted or pierced such as this ! Osman III's brief reign saw rising intolerance of non-Muslims (Christians and Jews being required to wear distinctive clothes or badges) and is also notable for a fire in Constantinople. He lived most of his life as a prisoner in the palace, and as a consequence on becoming Sultan

    AEF - About Extremely Fine, well struck and nicely toned.

     

    Very handsome little coin, well struck with no weak areas and nicely toned.  However, what is particularly interesting about this coin is the very small 'privy mark' under the denomination.  This is engraved on the die and appears to be a small fish or a chalice on its side.  Very interesting and hitherto unrecorded.  Issued in the latter part of the Boy King's reign when he was only thirteen or fourteen years of age, is a superb contemporary portrait of Henry VIII's sickly son Edward VI. Just over a year or so later, in February 1553, at age 15, Edward fell ill.  When his sickness was discovered to be terminal, he and his Council drew up a "Devise for the Succession", attempting to prevent the country being returned to Catholicism.  Edward named his cousin Lady Jane Grey as his heir and excluded his half sisters, Mary and Elizabeth.  However, this was disputed following Edward's death and Jane was queen for only nine days before Edward's half-sister, Mary, was proclaimed Queen.  She reversed Edward's Protestant reforms, which nonetheless became the basis of the Elizabethan Religious Settlement of 1559.
