JeandAcre Posted July 18, 2022 · Member Share Posted July 18, 2022 (edited) Finding more pics that only exist in an old, lengthy, correspondingly unfinished document. Sorry for the quality. Cnut, King of England 1016-1035. AR penny of Chester, quatrefoil type, c. 1017-1023. Obv. Cnut facing left, crowned and mantled, within a quatrefoil. Two piercings, at 5 and 6 o’clock, inviting comparison to other late Anglo-Saxon pennies, from less provincial mints, which were adapted (much less crudely than this) to use as broaches. [From 11 o’clock:] CNVT REX ‘/\NGLORVM (‘CNVT REX ANGLORVM;’ Cnut, King of the English). Rev. Voided long cross, extending to outer border, within quatrefoil. [From 1 o’clock:] +LE [/] [OF]PI [/] I\E ON [/] LEI (‘LEOFPINE ON LEI[GECESTRE];’ Leofwine, the moneyer of Chester). North 781 (and p. 173 for moneyer and mint), Spink 1157 (and p. 127 for mint).
