It's a saxon sceat and here are two nicer pictures

Post by dep1699 » Wed Nov 07, 2018 11:19 pm

This coin is now with the FLO, I hope she will tell me more about it.
I didn't found any real matching online, I was wondering if you have ever seen anything like this. I know that it's very worn and it could match with many sanxons. I am not even quite sure if it's silver or copper alloy.

Hi Thank you very much for sharing this link.
As you said he sent me the answer (and even recorded it on EMC database) in minutes.
Here is the answer

This is a coin of Series G (Type 3a). Here is a link the EMC/SCBI website, where you can see a large number of coins of this type by selecting 'Series G (Type 3a)' under 'Type': https://emc.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/advanced_search.

The reverse slightly resembles G3 but, looks more like a blundered copy. ::g

Now there is an official classification for this here is the link. I am not competent to judge if that is correct or not.
