Notes regarding class 4 sub-classes

All class 4 coins are scarce. The class was not sub-divided in Lawrence’s original classification, although he noted the early and late varieties of the crown.

Sub-classes 4a and 4b are only known of London. Sub-class 4ab was struck at London, Bury and Canterbury.
