Almost extremely fine.

This coin struck from dies of the early 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 Thetford.
