This came up today.
They were Saxon and proud of it, as in the centre it says SAXON.
Appears to match Spink 1041.
Complete but has an upturned edge.
21mm Diameter.
Moneyer IFA, Winchester.
Dark when i got home, photo not that good.
Over the moon with this one, appears to be quite rare.
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Dowel rolling that will straighten nicely after being recorded with PAS and the Corpus. A seriously rare coin. Well done.
