Description
Galley Halfpence
Historical Background

From the late 14th to the 16th century, small silver coins known as ‘galley halfpennies’ circulated widely, but illegally, in England. They were, in fact, Italian soldini, principally those struck for the city-state of Venice under the authority of the ruling doge. They were brought to England by ‘galley men’ trading wine and other goods, and their name may derive from Galley Quay in Thames Street, London, which was reputedly the centre for their distribution.

The Coins
The design of the soldino changed several times during the period that it circulated in this country, and its size reduced from c.15mm to c.12mm. The main types are:
Type 1
Obverse: [Doge’s Name] DVX; Doge standing left, holding banner; mint control marks in right field
Reverse: S MARCVS VENETI; Winged lion of St Mark, holding book of gospels

Soldino of Michele Steno (1400-1413)
Type 2
Obverse: [Doge’s Name] DVX; Doge standing left, holding banner; mint control marks in right field
Reverse: No Legend; Winged lion of St Mark, holding book of gospels, all within a quatrefoil with four external annulets between the lobes

Soldino of Nicolo Tron (1471-1473)
Type 3
Obverse: [Doge’s Name] DVX (in exergue), S M V; Doge holding banner and kneeling before St Mark
Reverse: LAVS TIBI SOLI (Praise To Thee Alone); Standing figure of Christ facing, haloed and holding cross; mint control marks in exergue

Soldino of Leonardo Loredan (1501-1521)

The Doges
The doges of Venice from the late 14th to mid 16th century are listed below with the types they are known to have struck. It should be noted that their names are spelt in various ways, depending on whether they are rendered in English, Italian or Latin, and they are often very abbreviated on the coins.

Michele Morosini 1382

Description
U.S.A. Customs Seal, Meat Inspector Seal

A tab shaped seal that looks to have been circular originally. Both sides have the remains of what looks to have been a continuous raised circle border. On one side there is a US ligature presumably representing the United States of America and on the other is the word MEAT straight across the top and INSPECTOR ? curved at the bottom. There may be a design between these words but the area has been obliterated by rust stains which also occur in several other places suggesting it was attached with wire.

Most likely to have a post 1906 (Federal Meat Inspection Act)
