Stephen (1135-54), silver Penny, Northern variant of Watford type (c.1136-45), Northern Mint probably a Carlisle variant, Moneyer Erebald, crude crowned bust with sceptre right, no inner circle, Latin legend and beaded border surrounding, +STIEFNE, rev. saltire at centre of cross moline, lis in each angle, Latin legend and beaded border surrounding, +EREBALD ON ER:., weight 1.08g (cf.Mack 280-281; N.873; S.1278). With a clear portrait, though reverse off-centre, one tiny rim split, legends not all visible, otherwise a bold very fine for a crude issue, seemingly the handiwork of Erebald of Carlisle and reminiscent of the cross border EDEN Mint reading pieces of the Edinburgh Mint of David II, an extremely rare piece.
