 Henry's coins are particularly interesting due to the wide range in types; there being 15 types of penny and two types of round halfpenny.   There has been some debate as to the correct sequence of the penny types, and the order shown below is as published by Dr Richard Kelleher, and based on the sequence proposed by Marion Archibald and William Conte.
