Denomination : Silver Penny.

Mint
 : York (Eoferi).

Moneyer : The moneyer's name appears to read DORK but the D has a small cross at the back making it a medieval form of TH derived from it's original Anglo-Saxon Runic form of TH, and the K is probably a second R poorly drawn and running into the edge.  This the moneyer's name is really THORR.  In the list of moneyer's at York mint during this era is a THOR, so it must be that moneyer with a second R added.
