Description: Harthacnut arm-and-sceptre type cut halfpenny of Southwark. The coin appears to be an obverse and reverse die-duplicate of EMC 1040-1707, which would establish the moneyer as Ægelpine.

Edward the Confessor Cut Halfpenny https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/early-medieval/late-anglo-saxon-period/edward-the-confessor-cut-halfpenny-54431.html Wed, 08 May 2019 10:44:42 GMT Late Anglo-Saxon period Edward the Confessor Cut Halfpenny  
Description: Edward the Confessor cut halfpenny of the 'Small Flan' type. Moneyer's name, Godric.

During Edward's reign, moneyers named Godric are known for approximately twenty mints. Identification of the specific mint in the case of the present coin would therefore only be possible by matching the surviving half with a full one struck from the same pair of dies.

Eadgar Penny https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/early-medieval/late-anglo-saxon-period/eadgar-penny-38369.html Sun, 26 Aug 2012 00:00:00 GMT Late Anglo-Saxon period Eadgar Penny  
Description: Eadgar penny, pre-reform, circumscription cross type, BMC III, struck at York.

The coin has very blundered legends. On a typical coin of this issue, the obverse ends with the word ANGLORVM (of the English), which is frequently abbreviated to ANGL, ANGLO, ANGLORX, etc, but the form on the present coin is AALO. This is very irregular and suggests the die-sinker was illiterate. Similarly, the reverse legend, which normally has the moneyer's name followed by MONETA and the mint name, is completely blundered except for the last word. It seems likely that the coin is a contemporary copy of a genuine York penny, which the forger has failed to copy accurately.

Edward the Confessor Cut Halfpenny https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/early-medieval/late-anglo-saxon-period/edward-the-confessor-cut-halfpenny-35483.html Tue, 27 Dec 2011 00:00:00 GMT Late Anglo-Saxon period Edward the Confessor Cut Halfpenny  
Description: Edward the Confessor cut halfpenny. The coin is a mule with an obverse of expanding cross type (BMV V), and a reverse of pointed helmet type (BMC VII).

The moneyer's name ends RIP, which makes the name Wilgrip most likely. Moneyers of this name are recorded for the mints of Hertford, Lincoln and Stamford. The letter that follows the copulative 'ON' on the present coin is 'N', which isn't the usual initial letter of any of the above mints during this reign. It is possible that it is simply an error, in which the 'N' of 'ON' has inadvertently been repeated, or it could have been entered in error for the 'H' of Hertford.

Late Saxon Cut Farthing (Unattributed) https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/coins/early-medieval/late-anglo-saxon-period/late-saxon-cut-farthing-unattributed-54025.html Tue, 27 Nov 2018 18:35:43 GMT Late Anglo-Saxon period Late Saxon Cut Farthing (Unattributed)  
Description: An unattributed late Saxon cut farthing, the obverse of which apparently depicts a diademed bust right. The reverse type is unclear, as little detail is present.

The most likely reign is that of Aethelred II, but the detail of the shoulder drapery is unusual.The only The surviving part of the reverse legend suggests that Winchester is possibly the mint..
