UNLISTED ISSUE. Not attested in RIC and very rare. Mintmark pattern somehow similar to LONDINIUM 128-132. Note that all four known specimens with this m.m. are from the same rev. die, i.e. an engraver's error could not be excluded. Listed in Cloke-Toone (6.04.002; this coin).

For the detailed analysis of this issue see: Hubert J. Cloke, Lee Toone, "Two Enigmatic Issues of London: The Rare Stars over T/F and Right Star over I/I Mintmarks", Revue Numismatique 2017, vol. 174, pp. 249-261.

Probably should be listed in RIC after LONDINIUM 132.
