Elizabeth I Penny, mm. Castle

S2570, N2001, BCW CA-1:CA-a. Elizabeth I third coinage penny, mm. Castle. ex Wilkinson collection & M Trennery list 2010. Weight 0.44g. Wilkinson notes the mark as an attempted change from Castle to Eglantine, but the coin has double striking evident with three profiles, and additionally, there is no logical reason to change a scarce mark to a common one.

Decent detail, but double struck. 

Grade: aVF
