Cut Hammy for ID - Is it Edward the Confessor small flan penny?

Post by Scariba » Mon Nov 11, 2019 9:17 am

Hi,
This little beauty came up yesterday in Winchester.
I've had a go at identifying it, of which I'm not that great at it.

Can anyone confirm if I'm right or point me in the right direction as to a correct ID.

Many thanks in advance.

Really interesting find. I collect cut Saxon and Norman coins and have never ever before seen a cut small-flan penny! Would recommend EMC'ing it with Dr Martin Allen if you haven't already....
God gives all men all earth to love, but since man’s heart is small,
Ordains for each one spot shall prove beloved over all.
Each to his choice, and I rejoice, the lot has fallen to me
In a fair ground—in a fair ground—Yea, Sussex by the sea!
