Secondary Sceattas (Sceats) For Sale (Circa 710 - 760 AD)
The 'secondary series' of sceats coincides with a massive expansion of minting all over southern and eastern England; it spread to every major Anglo-Saxon kingdom and formed part of the display of power and authority associated with early kingship. Sceat types can be attributed with some confidence to Wessex, Mercia, Sussex, Essex, Kent, Northumbria and East Anglia. There was widespread copying and debasement of the type, so that the weight fluctuated considerably (ca. 0.8-1.3 grams).
