Canute (1016-35), Penny, Short cross type (c.1029-35/36), Stamford Mint, moneyer Thurstan, diademed bust left with lis tipped sceptre, legend surrounding, CNV•T REX. Rev, voided short cross, within linear circle and legend surrounding, reads + ÐVR•STAN ON TA, 16mm, 0.87g (S.1159; N.790; BMC XVI; SCBI 15 [Copenhagen, Part IIIc], 3660; Wells, BNJ 24 (1941-44), 193).

A fully centred striking on a round flan, brightly toned, small flan edge flaw through the E of Rex. Legends legible especially so on the reverse, portrait comprehensive, free from peckmarks, fields notably clear. Bold very fine near extremely fine, an impressive example with much eye appeal.
