Description

Edward the Elder (899-924), Penny, Two Line type, moneyer Wulfheard, small cross pattée within solid inner circle, legend reads +EADVVEARD REX. Rev, in two lines VVLFE/ ARDMO, three crosses pattées between, trefoils above and below, inside linear circle, 1.55g (S.1087; N.649; BMC II; CTCE. 28 – Plate 1).

A comprehensive very fine, in places better. A clear rendition of the less encountered moneyer, perhaps struck with rusty dies. Slightest lack of flan at 5 o’clock, much eye appeal, evenly toned. Scarce.

Ex. Argyll, with an original ticket in his hand, an additional ticket also in place.
