WSax-6448: Cnut Late Saxon Hammered Silver Penny. Pointed helmet type (1024-30), B.M.C. xiv. Blundered and retrograde images – a contemporary imitation of possibly Continental origins. We’re all aware of the later Norman practice of test cutting Henry 1st pennies, indicating that contemporary counterfeits were a serious issue at the time, but how many of us have actually seen Saxon and Norman contemporary counterfeits? This coin would fool anyone in Saxon / Norman times (and now), assuming they were illiterate, which many people were. A rare and interesting coin requiring much research. Ex Spink. £385
