This coin is the real thing, found by myself in Febuary whilst searching [Metal-detecting] on a field in my area. When i dug this up i knew it was not the usual short-cross or long-cross coin. The standard Spink coin book shows a similar coin [Spink 929] without any pellets around the cross-crosslet and a different moneyer,so i think that my find is a variation of that coin.The condition of the coin is brilliant and has only been lightly cleaned in warm water,as i was told over cleaning could devalue the coin.I don't know where the coin was struck or the moneyers name [except to say it begins with an E.]as there are saxon runes which make no sense to me.If anyone can tell me please do.Found in North Dorset.

NOTE.I have had many emails from various ebayers, telling me that this coin was struck in East Anglia by a moneyer called EACGA and the pellets on the reverse are probably privy marks.
