The 'Eleutherios' Collection of English Coins

Lt. Col. H. W. Morrieson, F.S.A., writing in the BNJ 16 (1921, pp. 129-188), noted: "The [1644] coins are similar to the latest type of 1643, and on some, like the half-crowns, the stops are lozenges. There is not such a variety of busts on the money used for circulation as in the previous year."
