I'm hoping to get some information on this coin and especially on who the moneyer is. There is a clear W with an I or maybe L following. Ligated OR followed by a T.
I've looked at Winchester and wilton, gone through all the names of moneyers but nothing seem to match. Could this be a continental coin? any information greatly received.

Welcome to Numista and best wishes for 2019

Sorry for asking, are these iron tweezers?
Very nice coin.
Dimensions and weight would be welcome

those are steel tweezers, and what he is saying is you shouldn't be handling coins like that. Best way to handle old coins without get fingers on them is use rubber tweezers or cotton gloves.

Thank you. I’ve been on those sites but unfortunately cannot find a mint or moneyer with the letters OR T.

You have set quite a challenge with barely half the reverse legend showing but I wish you luck. I'm not sure if this is any help but from my copy of Spink, here is a list of mints, moneyers and classes for the Long Cross coinage:

SHEZ,
Robert Page and Rod Blunt both have wonderful website on Henry-III coinage. The "ORT" doesn't ring a bell right now but it could be a contemporary imitation. Check with Rob on the Henry-III site, he has been very helpful to me in the pass and he has a large listing of imitation.

Hope this help...
