Possible Anglo-Saxon Penny

Recommended Posts

Found in the US or Britian? I am not an expert in the series, but it looks off to me and I don't have books covering that series to very my suspicion. There are others here, however, who know these coins quite well.

Found in Britain no Way it would be found in the US if you like I can give the ruler at a the time I believe it was made... Okay here's some info you may be able to make sense of because I honestly know nothing about coins...

AETHELRED 11 [978-1016] silver penny

Long Cross type
WATCHET mint - Moneyer - HUNWINE
Only 10 recorded in EMC/SCBI - all in museum collections
Also I have my suspicions this coin is fake, but I thought it may be worth checking.

I'm going to say reproduction. There's lots of repros of silver pennies, and one of the easy giveaways is that they're "too perfect" in terms of strike, centering, and flan.

Unfortunately this is a modern replica. :(


It has the letters WRL stamped under the portrait which stand for Westair Reproductions Limited.
