Roerbakmix Posted May 25 · Member Share Posted May 25 Last week I spotted a sceatta on a facebook group that sold for a whopping of 41 GBP. I missed it, and was rather frustrated as it was a rare, late English sceatta with the moneyers name WIGRAED (in Runic) inscribed on it. Luckily, I knew the winner, who sold it for me for 60 GBP - a very fair price. The coin arrived today, and it was in pitiful condition: I was able to improve it a little bit, showing the legend and confirming my ID: EARLY MEDIEVAL, Anonymous. Denomination: AR Sceatta (Series R10 (Wigraed)), minted: East Anglia, uncertain mint; c. 710-750 AD Obv: Radiate bust of crude style right, annulet either side of head, runic "WIGED", before, ΛO and pellets behind, wearing collared drapery Rev: Beaded degenerate standard Weight: 0.71g; Ø: 11 mm. Ex. Victor Parsons 05-2023; acq.: 05-2023 Find location: England Published: No To help reading a little bit, here are the runes outlined in red (ᚹᛁᚷᛖᛞ) It's a nice, though debased and rough, companion to my other Wigraed: ... which is even more debased (though not as rough) as the one I've added today. Some on that coin was posted here (https://www.cointalk.com/threads/added-two-sceattas-series-b-and-r.367032/#post-4889258) before. 20 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
