Aethelred II Penny (LIN-8887C3)
A cut silver penny of Aethelred II found near Hogsthorpe, Lincolnshire
A cut CRUX-type penny minted by Hundulf of York on behalf of King Aethelred II. While this coin is Anglo-Saxon, the fact that it has been cut may suggest that it was used as a part of a bullion transaction in line with the dual bullion-monetary economy established by the Vikings in England.
