Description

Edward the Confessor (1042-1066), Penny, Expanding cross type, light issue (1050-1053). Lincoln mint, Jewel Cross style portrait (bust C), moneyer Othgrim, bust facing left holding sceptre tipped with four pellets, legend reads +EDPARD REX. Rev, short cross voided with expanded limbs joined at the base by two circles, legend surrounds +OÐGRIM ON LINCO.: ,1.08g (S.1176; N.822; BMC.V; Mossop, plate LXXIII; 17, same dies).

A surprisingly well struck example with the rarer ‘Jewel Cross portrait’, some soft spots in places, dies marginally rusty more so on the reverse. Legend scripts all comprehensive, the reverse especially clear. Some peckmarks on obverse and flan metal stress striations on reverse. Very fine, amber gold toning, rare.

The Jewel Cross style portrait [Bust C] has been recorded appearing in Lincoln, Norwich, Stamford and York. (see, North, vol. 1, pp 179-180).
