Norman Hammered penny of William 1st. 1066. – 1087. two stars type. (Spink 1254.) Minted at Sandwich by the moneyer Ælfheh, reading +IELFH[EI?]ON SAI. weight 1.1gms. It is the first William I type V coin of this moneyer recorded in EMC, but there is one other specimen in the British Museum from the R.C. Lockett collection,

The below information was received from the Numismatic and Fine Art Consultants

The lettering on the reverse of William I pennies is sometimes ambiguous; additionally, the spelling of moneyers’ names and that of the mint can vary. Therefore, the interpretation of legends can at times be difficult. On this coin the start of the moneyer’s name is clearly IELFH but the last part is flat; this is followed by ON and then the abbreviated mint signature, which is SIID. Two uprights (II) can stand for A,H,M,N,or V. SIID is usually Sudbury or Southwark. However, the moneyer points towards neither of these mints; instead, Sandwich will be more likely; as Ae1fheh was an official at that mint. IE is often used on Norman pennies instead of the more usual AE. The mint signature for Sandwich is usually SANDP ( lot 1063 in the Elmore Jones collection, a William I Paxs type penny bearing the name of Aelfheh) but it can be abbreviated. The signature on this coin might be meant to be SND, which would be unusual but could only be interpreted as Sandwich. All of this adds up to the coin being an extreme rarity. Two stars type pennies of William I from the Sandwich mint are known but i have not traced a specimen bearing the name of Aelfheh, so your penny might be unique. It joins many other great rarities, There is a weak area on both sides and a very light crack but the coin is otherwise in VF condition

100% Authentic, .

Condition. VF for issue with a wavy flan and being an extreme rarity and possibly unique; This coin is a very sort after coin for any coin collection, Please look at the images and judge the condition for yourself, The coin has had a gentle clean using a tooth brush and soapy water and now looks like a very attractive center piece to any collection.
