A very collectable, early hammered, silver Penny of King Edward the Confessor. A very old coin from the late Anglo-Saxon period of the first Kings of England. This coin is of the "Expanding cross" type of the "Heavy Silver" issue, and was struck by the moneyer named "Harcin" at the Stamford mint between the years 1050-1053. In this period, moneyers had to have their name on the coin to assure quality control. Any coins found to be sub-standard would result in severe consequences for the moneyer, even going so far as hanging! This coin of strong strike with very minor oxidation to the reverse.

Expanding cross type. Bust with diadem facing left with sceptre in front. EDWERD REX.

Heavy issue. Short cross voided with expanding limbs joined at the centre with two circles. HAERDCYN ON STANF.
