Description

Canute (1016-35), Penny, Short cross type (c.1029-35/36), Winchester Mint, moneyer Godwine Ceoca, diademed bust left with lis tipped sceptre, legend surrounding, CNVT R•ECX. Rev, voided short cross, within linear circle and legend surrounding, reads +GODPINE CΛ-C ON PII, second I in PII ligates to the top cross, 1.13g (S.1159; N.790; BMC XVI; Hildebrand 3755).

Fully centred strike on a round flan, deep grey toning. Comprehensive portrait with fine detail, northern vicinity of coin dished in the minting process with a corresponding weakness on reverse. Legends in the main clear and concise, some flatness in the second part of moneyers name. A considerably rare moneyer. Good very fine, better in places, very rare.

Godwine Ceoca, being one of three Godwine’s issuing coins within the Winchester Mint. The other two are Godwine Widia and Godwine Cas. The second name helped differentiate them from one another. (North, Vol 1, p178, Winchester Mint/ moneyer index)
