Description

Canute (1016-35), Penny, Short cross type (c.1029-35/36), Thetford Mint, moneyer Brunstan, diademed bust left with lis tipped sceptre, legend surrounding, CNVT. REC:X:. Rev, voided short cross, within linear circle and legend surrounding, reads +BRVNSTΛN O ÐE, 1.12g (S.1159; N.790; BMC XVI; SCBI 15 [Copenhagen, Part IIIc] 3793-97; Carson 107).

Undulating flan, brightly toned with a deep golden undertone especially on the obverse around the legend regions. Well struck with a weak point on portrait (often observed on this type for Brunstan of Thetford: see, DNW, Auction 163, lot 1492. 18/09/2019 for a comparison), a definitive reverse in its moneyer mint script. Good very fine, reverse better, an excellent example.
