http://www.psdetecting.com/Mintmarks.html 
Mintmarks first started to appear under the reign of Edward III and have continued to be used even on the very latest modern decimal issues. Like the older coin inscriptions system of moneyers and town/city names these marks were intended to be used as a way of holding moneyer's accountable for the quality of their coins. Initially this new idea was used in tandem with the older inscriptions system but eventually only the new mintmarks system would prevail. As mintmarks were used to distinguish a coin, who struck it, where and when, it has left us with considerable information in historical archives which we can use to help identify a coin even if it is not dated, or its origin is not immediately known.
