Description

Eadgar (959-975), Penny, Two-line type, pre-reform (959-72/3) moneyer Eanulf, small cross pattée, legend surrounding, +EΛDGΛR RE, four pellets after. Rev, three cross pattées across centre, moneyer name in two lines, trio of pellets above and below, EΛИ•V /LFMO, contraction bar above m, 20.5mm, 1.09g (S.1129; N.741; HT NE V; CTCE. 42, Plate 17).

Slight off centre strike using a worn obverse die, legends generally legible, flan marginally ragged at 4 o’clock synonymous in Tetney hoard examples. Clear and concise reverse script for moneyer, slight fade in the lower trefoil of pellets. Small trace of red wax below the first Λ of Eadgar, indicating its status as a plate coin. Very fine for issue, struck with worn dies, toned, hailing from a revered provenance.

Ex Tetney Hoard, with accompanying ticket, classification code R.N.C 214.
