Description

Canute (1016-35), Penny, quatrefoil type, Colchester Mint, Moneyer Wulfwine, crowned and draped bust left within quatrefoil, legend commences at top, +CNVT REX ANGLOX, outer beaded circle surrounding both sides, rev long voided cross with pellet centre and tri-crescent terminals, over quatrefoil with pellet on each cusp, +ED PIN E ON COL, 0.95g (BMC type VIII; N.781; S.1157).

Weak in parts, once cleaned, otherwise very fine.

This coin struck from dies of the late class A “Thetford” style as defined by Blackburn and Lyon in their article “Regional Die-Production in Cnut’s Quatrefoil Issue” chapter 13 of Anglo-Saxon Monetary History. These dies therefore cut at Thetford and supplied for use to strike coinage in Colchester.
