Hi Steffen, welcome to the forum.


This is a penny of Henry II, as you say, but not a shortcross. This is a Cross & Crosslet penny, otherwise known as a 'Tealby' penny due to a huge hoard of them found at Tealby in England.


The moneyer is Turstain and the mint is likely to be Ipswich. Looks to be a variety of Bust C from the portrait.


Hope this helps.
