World, Carolingian, Charles "the Bald", silver denier, Melle, c. 900 AD, reads "METVLLTO" on the reverse in error for "METVLLO". 21 mm, 1.49 g. 

Given the style and the erroneous reverse legend, this is likely a posthumous issue struck under Charles "the Simple" (898-922 AD), although it could date earlier in the 9th century, perhaps even to the end of the reign of Charles "the Bald" (i.e. c. 878 AD). 

Cross, legend CARLVS REX R/Carolingian monogram, legend MET+VLLTO +. 

EF, weakly struck in parts, attractively toned. Extremely rare; not in MEC I, none in CoinArchives.
