Description: Charles I, third coinage, twenty-pence of Scotland.

The letter ’B’ (the initial of Nicholas Briot - Master of the Scottish Mint) appears below the bust and below the reverse thistle. This variety of reverse is not listed in the Spink or Coincraft Catalogues, but is noted in a paper by J K R Murray (BNJ 39, 1970, The Scottish Gold and Silver Coinages of Charles I).

Cf. UKDFD 9618 and UKDFD 33391, which have the same reverse, but lack Briot's initial on the obverse.

Charles I Twenty Pence, Scotland (Forgery) https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/scottish-coins/charles-i/charles-i-twenty-pence-scotland-forgery-7401.html Sun, 10 Jun 2007 00:00:00 GMT Charles I Charles I Twenty Pence, Scotland (Forgery)  
Description: A contemporary cast forgery of a Charles I third coinage twenty-pence of Scotland. The metal is uncertain, but now has a yellowish colour. Base silver with a high copper content is one possibility.

The coin has been cast using a genuine twenty pence (cf. UKDFD 5011) as a pattern. The molten metal has failed to flow correctly, so the D after CAR, for example, has an incomplete loop, whereas the loop of the R has filled up. Metal flow from one letter to the next, as between the O and T of SCOT, is also evident, as is a general lack of sharpness, even in areas that would not have worn.
