Good Very Fine, Even strike
Edward III, treaty period (1361-1369), noble, king holding sword and shield, facing in ship, rev. ornate cross, E in centre.
While relatively common, the gold nobles of this reign are fine mementoes of their era and summon images in the mind's eye of medieval bankers and traders counting their profits from the wool trade with Flanders, which was their principal purpose initially.
They are collected by period, relating to the 1360s Treaty of Brétigny with France over an ages-old quarrel for territory.
