William I (the Conqueror), Norman King of England 1066-1087

Wilton mint, moneyer Godric. Facing “bonnet” portrait; reverse, within an inner circle, a cross voided by a central annulet, each limb ending with a pellet between two crescents, and a pile in each angle.

Sharply detailed portrait and cross, legends quite clear, struck on a broad full flan of good metal, with almost complete beaded rims, choice surfaces, ideal golden gray patina.
