Indeed, an Eadgar Circumscription Cross penny but only the second recorded coin of this moneyer. Not bad condition either, part of my tenth century set. I'll try and get a few more of my rarities up soon.

That is why you got 2 wows for it being almost unique, and please post your other rarities :ninja:

 

What is the moneyer's name Clive? Also, if it is not to crass a question (you do not have to answer) what is it's monetary value?

The moneyer is Martin/Marin on Pintonia which is the mint of Winchester. Dates to around 965 A.D. ;)

 

I shall PM you regarding the latter question. ;)

Here's a coin I just picked up recently. This is a copper Bani from WALLACHIA 1429-1435 AD. It was supposedly issued under Ban: Nicolae Redwitz, but some numismatists in Romania believe these were actually issued under Prince: Dan II (1420-1431 AD). Regardless, these coins are rather scarce.

Very nice penny!

 

This is what is confusing, the definition of rarity. There are thousands of Cnut pennies like this and so it is deemed common. Whereas you can have thousands of one type of milled coin and it is deemed scarce. In the general scheme of things I suppose this can be considered rare but perhaps not in the family of numismatics it belongs to. Nonetheless, a superb example, thanks for sharing.
