Description

Canute (1016-35), Penny, Quatrefoil type (c.1017-1023), Hertford mint, moneyer Leofinc , London style bust, crowned and draped portrait left within inner quatrefoil, legend commences, +CNVT REX ANGLORVM. Rev, long voided cross over quatrefoil with pellet cusps and pellet centre, reads +LYFINC ON HRET, 1.01g (S.1157; N.781; BMC VIII).

Struck with rusty dies, some flatness in parts of the legend, portrait competent in its detail, on a full problem free flan. Inner and outer borders depicted well, with a broad reverse quatrefoil. About very fine, in a more desirable mint town.

On researching the moneyer and mint for this series, several others seem to have gone to auction with the same and or similar dies, many appearing flat in certain areas. Cf., London Coin Auctions lot 1642, Auction 154 (3rd September 2016).
