Hammer Price:

Harold II (1066), Penny, PAX type, London, Eadwine, EDPINE ON LVN[D], 1.27 gms (N. 836; S. 1186). Reverse double-struck, obverse partly weak but with a clear portrait, fine, rare

Ex Garner (50) and SNC Feb. 1974 (1288); both catalogues incorrectly describe the coin as being of the Lincoln mint, but a correct attribution to London was made in a saleroom notice before the auction of Sir Harry Garner’s coins
