Description

Canute (1016-35), Penny, Short cross type (c.1029-35/36), London Mint, moneyer Brihtmaer, diademed bust left with lis tipped sceptre, legend surrounding, CNVT RECX. Rev, voided short cross, within linear circle and legend surrounding, reads +BRIHTMÆR ON L, 1.17g (S.1159; N.790; BMC XVI; SCBI 14 [Copenhagen, Part IIIb], 2191, same dies with abbreviated mint signature as ‘L’).

Darkly toned with a radiant mint underlying lustre, well centred in its strike, free from peckmarks. Well struck with partially blocked dies visible in the northern tip and the south east region of obverse, reflected also on reverse. A couple of die breaks, legends generally intelligible. An academic example, much eye appeal, good very fine in the strike despite the blocked dies.
