Crown Dies as they might have appeared before making coins - easy to see how errors were made !

The data based on around 300 coins from the period, shows a predominance around both 1 and 7 o’clock, which perhaps suggests that the target for hammered coinage in production was perhaps en medaille or inverted as found on today’s coins around the world. Orientation does not appear to be a random phenomenon.

Compilation of die orientations seen on coinage of this period,  Most common orientation appears to be 1h and 7 h. suggesting that 12h and 6h was the intention.
