Description

Canute (1016-35), Penny, Quatrefoil type (c.1017-1023), Southwark mint, moneyer Aethelwig, London style bust B, crowned and draped bust left within quatrefoil, legend commences at 12 o’clock, +CNVT REX ΛGLORVN. Rev, long voided cross over quatrefoil with pellet cusps and pellet centre, reads +EÐELPIG ON SVÐG, 0.99g (S.1157; N.781; BMC VIII; SCBI-).

Handsome cabinet tone, well centred, weakly struck in places. Rarer London B dies, the smallest of the three groups of dies used; the distinct stylised crown, the point to which the obverse legend commences and the way in which the drapery radiates from the brooch all hallmarks of ‘London B’ dies. A scarcer moneyer also in place. Very fine, scarce.
