Stephen 'Uncertain Mint/Unrecorded Moneyer' Awbridge Penny 024995
Excessively Rare Stephen 'Uncertain Mint/Unrecorded Moneyer' Awbridge Penny
Silver, 1.35 grams, 19.11 mm. 1154-1158 AD; BMC VII. Obverse: three-quarter bust with sceptre and [+STI]EFNE legend. Reverse: voided cross in quatrefoil with [+]R[I]CARD:[-]:ON[: ]C?[ ] legend for an unrecorded moneyer with a suffix initial at an uncertain mint. Ricard is not a common moneyer name for the Stephen coinages, recorded as occurring only at London and Shaftsbury, but without the suffix letter that is clearly present to this coin; the supposition must be that this is a new moneyer reading for Stephen but, until a better struck example appears, the full details are likely to remain uncertain, worthy of research. S. 1282; N. 881. Near as struck, part flat as usual; unrecorded, possibly unique.
