Class 5g

Class 5g coins typically show a thick crown-band, but it becomes thinner on late 5g pennies.  There is a distinct central fleur above the crown, though often it is very low.  X is type X6, and the R is type R3. Eyes are oval, often with a thick outline.  A number of pellets, often three, are sometimes seen either side of the chin. 

The design degrades through time, with the bust becoming narrower and the chin sharper. There is no distinct division between class 5g and 5h (nor 5h and 5i).

Late 5g coins still have a distinct central fleur but may be low down and in contact with the crown-band. The crown-band is not so thick as on earlier 5g coins. Not to be confused with class 5c coins: look carefully at the the style of the letters R and/or X.

*London coins of moneyer Robert are very rare, and are believed to be of Canterbury, but mistakenly struck with the wrong mint name.
