Scarborough castle suffered a full year long siege in which Sir Hugh Chomley handed out coins at the rate of sixpence a day to those repairing walls. The Scarborough money gives good examples of the rough cut nature of the coins - it is often obvious that they were made from crafted objects rather than featureless metal. The value was determined by the weight of the silver.
