British hammered, Anglo-Saxon, cross/standard sceat, c. 690-715, issue of Radbod, king of Frisia, probably minted in Wijnaldum (modern-day Netherlands), but circulated in England and Scandinavia.


According to legend, Radbod notoriously refused to be baptised because he preferred to be damned with his ancestors instead of saved without them. But the explicitly Christian types of his coinage attest otherwise...

VF+, bright metal, reverse lamination and roughness.
