Aethelred II, King of all England 978-1016 AD

London mint, moneyer Godman. Bare-headed portrait facing left, without scepter; reverse, long cross voided, central pellet, each limb terminating in 3 crescents.

A very choice example of this type, evenly and sharply struck on a broad full flan of good metal, with broad beaded rims, and unusually fine pinkish blue and gray pastel patina.
