...absolute peach Brian, well done mate. The reverse reads ADAM ON LVNDE, which is for Adam at the London mint. Adam minted coins for both John (5b-5c) and Henry III (7b-7c). This looks very much like the portrait on the 5b and that is what I would ID it as: John (1199-1216) Penny, Class 5b, Moneyer: Adam, London Mint, Spink 1351

....no worries mate, the portraits tend to be crisper on the John's and the Henry's have a more prominent "shaggy" beard. At first I thought this might have been a Henry 7b, because of the square topped looking letter "A" on the reverse, but the letter "M" in "ADAM" does not appear like the letter "H" and is a definite "M", so 7b could be ruled out, and the 7c has a very degraded portrait, which your beauty doesn't have. Thus, back to John and the portrait, cross pattee on the reverse and the letter "X" in "REX" confirmed it as a 5b - IMHO  ;) ;D
