    Silver Penny of King Canute .

    The weather forecast said showers . but the sun was shining so l decided to go off detecting as l had a new field to search, l had been on it about 20 years ago but l had only done a couple of hours then. Now l have got it again and can give it a good search. The sun was still shining when l started searching today . l spent 5 hours in total today with not too many signals, but just before l was ready to call it a day. Here it is a Silver penny of King Canute.
    Canute Reigned from 1018 to 1035.

    Wow! What an incredibly old and beautiful Silver penny of King Canute. UK history is fascinating. Do you know if King Canute was contemporary with the Battle of Hastings?
    Thanks for sharing.

    I'm not good with history but King Canute died 31 years before the Battle of Hastings, so maybe not!! Hutch.

    I also vote banner on this one. For those not in the know, Canute (Cnut) pennies easily sell for $200-400 in this condition and perhaps more if it is a rare mint/type. Myself I'm not very good with early hammered but I am curious to know what is the mint/moneyer is for this one.

    I'm awaiting that info as well, could be unusual. Haven't got the time to research it myself, but can see the mint starts 'ST' (maybe Stamford).

    Knut Svenson (also known as Canute or Cnut) attempted to seize the English throne on the death of Æthelred; for several years he contended with Edmund Ironside, until the latter's death. Cnut was initially unpopular due to the fear that he would tax England excessively and use English warriors in his Scandinavian campaigns, but he was careful to support the church and behave like an English king, and his reign was marked by prosperity and relative harmony based on military strength. Cnut married Æthelred's widow, Emma, and purged the English nobility of its disloyal and self-serving members, such as Eadric Streona of Mercia, and paid off his invasion force. The almost two decades of Cnut's reign marked a shift in English attitudes, as Cnut was king of England, Denmark and Norway; he ruled over a North Sea Empire. At his death, he was buried in Winchester Cathedral.

    Seems although it reads Dunstan it actually is the moneyer Thurstan. Sorry l had it wrong. Hutch.
