Description

Canute (1016-35), Penny, Helmet type (c.1024-1030), Cambridge mint, moneyer Wulfsige, pointed helmet bust left with sceptre in front, legend surrounding at 1 o’clock, CNVT REX ΛNG. Rev, short voided cross with pellet and annulet centre, pellet in annulet in each angle, all within linear circle, reads +P•VLS•IGE ON GRΛ•N, 1.03g (S.1158; N.787; BMC XIV; SCBI 13 [Copenhagen, Part IIIa], 1122, same dies).

A collectible mint in Cambridge with a rare moneyer not appearing in the auction database in the recent past. Struck on a wavy flan with a sound portrait, all legends legible with the exception of a softness to the strike at 8 o’clock (reflected on reverse also). Otherwise amber yellow toning, pleasing. Very fine, rare in the moneyer.
