Halfpenny of Æthelstan

Found at Thornborough Bridge, Buckinghamshire in May 2012 and recorded at the EMC as 2012.0167. Only two other round halfpence of Æthelstan are known. The auctioneer suggests that this rarity and the unusual design may be because of irregular practices by the moneyer Ingelri at the Oxford mint.
