Kings of Wessex - Edward The Elder Silver Penny 899-924AD. Portrait type, extremely rare.

Edward was the last 'King of Wessex' and followed by his son Aethelstan who unified the Kingdoms to make one 'England'. His coins bear the legend 'Aethelstan king of all Britain' and as the child of a Wessex king this is surely where his roots lie.

Large flan & blundered legends meaning this coin is probably a Viking imitation. Good metal, no cracks, well toned. Coin appears better in hand.

23mm, 1.30g
