Description

Canute (1016-35), Penny, Quatrefoil type (c.1017-1023), Gloucester mint, moneyer Sired, crowned and draped bust left within quatrefoil, legend commences, +CNVT REX ANGLORVM. Rev, long voided cross with pellet centre and tri-crescent terminals, reads +SIRED ON GLEP, 1.07g (S.1157; N.781; BMC VIII). A marginally ragged flan on good metal, clear legends both sides, portrait more than comprehensive, a couple of unobtrusive peck marks, softly struck in places on obverse, reverse bold. Very fine for issue, rare.

Ex Baldwin’s basement, with a supporting ticket.

Gloucester it appears is accepted as a rarer mint for the type, the Canute Gloucester quatrefoils are an interesting area. Many are struck with small emblems and symbols to the left of the bust, a small cross before face, a trefoil before bust and a W in front of bust to name a few (see : SCBI 52 : 426/Plate 20 for an example of the W, same mint and moneyer as our example).
