Description

Edward the Confessor (1042-1066), Penny, Radiate small cross type (c.1044-46) Lewes mint, moneyer Eadwine, radiate and draped bust left, legend surrounds EDÞER D REX A. Rev, small cross pattee within inner linear circle, legend reads EDPINE ON LIEPEE, 1.14g (S.1173; N.816; BMC I).

Recorded as extremely rare on the supporting ticket, due to the mint for the type. No others have surfaced at auction in the past two decades of this precise type and mint. Darkly toned with a few peck marks mainly to the reverse, on a full flan with consistent detail on both sides. Good very fine, pleasing, very rare.
