Uncoined: “take a fellow of plain and u. constancy, for he perforce must do thee right, because he hath not the gift to woo in other places,” H5 V, 2, 161. Explained by some as == not counterfeit, real, true; by others as implying that Katharine was the first woman that ever made an impression on Henry. But what follows seems to show, that by uncoined constancy a constancy is meant which has not the current stamp on it (viz insinuating words etc.) and, being therefore unfit for circulation, must for ever remain in one and the same place.
