Oxfordshire D&H-1 variety, with the PAYABLE at BANBURY edge.

One of our favorite Conder issues, with the striking sunface obverse surrounded by DEUS . EST . NOBIS . SOL . ET . SCUTUM (translated as "God is a Sun and Shield to Us", a variant of the motto of the town of Banbury: DOMINUS NOBIS SOL ET SCUTUM).

With a smug looking portrait of WM. RUSHER HATTER BOOKSELR. & STATIONER . BANBURY on the reverse.

The piece itself is an electric RB gem about as nice as we've ever seen for this type.

This coin is from the CRO archives and is not currently available for sale.
