SOme time ago, I bought this Henry VIII groat for my wife's Tudor/Stuart OFER collection, but somewhere along the way the detailed attribution went missing. We just have "Henry VIII Groat 1526-32."
From what I can glean from Numista, COinArchives, etc, it's second issue, but generally I see a date range 1526-44. Does the specific mint/privy mark narrow the date range? And would anyone venture a catalog number?
Thanks in advance.

Mintmark is the Lis, which was used throughout the Second coinage 1526 to 1544 in London, so I don't think that gets you any closer to a date.
I believe the reference is S2337E - Large Laker bust D, Roman nose etc. The scarcer S2338 would have the HIB in the titles, which I do not see. S2337E appears to be the most common of the second coinage groats.

A very beautiful and historic coin showing the 2nd bust of him. He looks a lot more solid than the Renaissance page boy look of the 1st coinage (Although I heard it may his dad Henry VII who was well into his 40s then).

I had a look at a good mintmark page and could not find anything more specific either.

Still interesting and historic piece!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
