Struck by moneyers: Coenred (11), Ethelweard (6), Hunlaf (5), Ethelhelm (2). Fine to VF. ex-Classical Numismatic Group (CNG).

From the Peter Moffat Collection. Ex Christie's (April 14, 1981), lot 132; 1967 Bolton Percy Hoard.
Discovered in the fall of 1967 when two schoolboys found some scattered coins in a field near the bank of the river Wharfe, the Bolton Percy Hoard yielded nearly 1800 bronze coins from the mid 9th century AD. This was probably part of an earlier, unrecorded hoard discovered in the area in 1846 containing an additional 2000 coins. It is believed these 4,000 Northumbrian coins were buried prior to a Viking attack on the region in 866 AD. #286577: $199 each

Hi Gabriel, please do not take offence but I noticed that the two stycas you have for sale are not Coenred. They are both Wigmund but both moneyers are Ethelweard. The 2095 is VIGMUND-I-REP Retrograde(backwards) Moneyer EDILVEARD. The 2096 is VIGMUND-I-REP Moneyer is EDILVAERD E and A reversed. If I remember correctly the IREP stands for when he was Archbishop.
