Series G silver sceatta

This coin turned up on the 13th of April. It was unearthed by Carl Gatenby and the images were sent to the website in for me to provide a full ID and a valuation.

The coin is a silver sceatta, which is an example of the secondary series struck between AD 710 and 760. It has characteristics that mark it out as belonging to type 3a of series G, of which there are many varieties.

On the obverse is a head facing right with a cross pommee in front. On the reverse is a square standard with and annulet in the centre and symbols in the angles.   


This sceatta looks to be in its ‘as struck’ condition. On the minus side the obverse is a bit off centre and the reverse even more so. The offset strike might put off some collectors but the coin still has some eye appeal, so my price range would be £150 to £180.
