Alexander III of Scotland,  Silver penny
(1249-1286)
Class F 
From my own collection. I ceased collecting coins a very long time.
This is a  nice example of this coin.
Obverse: Crowned bust looking left holding sceptre, + initial mark ALEXANDER DEI GRA
Reverse: /SCO/TOR/VM+

 Long cross with stars in each quarter with points totalling 25

Alexander was born in Roxburgh in 1241 and became king of Scotland in 1249. His greatest achievement was gaining the Isle of Man and the Western Isles for a monetary payment after years of argument and negotiation, and even attack, by Norway. Something his father never achieved. It was agreed that Norway retained Orkney and Shetland.
