Description

Edward the Confessor (1042-66), Penny, Pyramids type (1065-66), Winchester mint, moneyer Anderboda, crowned bust right, trefoil tipped sceptre in front, legend surrounds EΛDÞΛRD RE. Rev, voided short cross, in each angle a pyramid style symbol terminating in a pellet tip, annulet in centre, legend reads +ΛNDERBODE ON PI, 1.20g (S.1184; N.831; BMC XV; SCBI 24 [West Country] 963; SCBI 30 [American collections] 657).

A well struck coin on a full flan, grey toning, some faint doubling a little soft spot in the ear region. Reverse precise in the moneyer mint script, some softness in the pyramids design, perhaps die rusty. The moneyer very rare for this type, none appearing at auction in any of the recent archives post 1999, the mint signature for Anderboda not appearing in more cases than others, our example showing the ON PI. Very fine, rare.
