Just had it identified by Dr Martin Allen.


Æthelwulf of Wessex, Rochester mint, moneyer Beagmund (North 592). This is type R19.1 in Rory Naismith's book The Coinage of Southern England 796-865, which records seven other coins of this type.

The obverse reads EÐEL[VV]LFRE[X] and the reverse reads +BEAGMUND.


WELL CHUFFED.
Well found. Well done. And fair play to Dr.Allen ::g
I'd be on cloud nine with a find like this -=+:-P

That's a beauty, and very well done indeed to find the offcut.
