Description

Edward the Confessor (1042-66), Penny, Pyramids type (1065-66), London mint, moneyer Wulfgar, crowned bust right, trefoil tipped sceptre in front, legend surrounds EADÞARD REX. Rev, voided short cross, in each angle a pyramid style symbol terminating in a pellet tip, annulet in centre, legend reads +PVLGΛR ON LVN, G in legend in a sidelong manner, 1.26g (S.1184; N.831; BMC XV).

Struck on a noticeably broad flan, displaying the outer edge beaded borders, portrait, beard, pellets and fasteners to the drapery all outstanding, with the crown being the only point showing wear, the slightest of weakness to parts of legends in the high point between 1 and 2 o’clock. Hairline die flaw in the initial part of legend. Reverse, legible and clear, slightly blocky dies, mint moneyer signature with clarity, a sideways and retrograde lower case g for Wulfgar. One of the more desirable types in the series, good very fine.
