Aethelred (the Unready) II, Silver Cut Halfpenny, CRVX Type, Leicester Mint

 

 This historic present comes in a small film suspension box for display. Ideal for the unusual gift for an 'unready' partner or friend! With a certificate of authenticity and historical notes.

   The half penny was produced by the mint by cutting pennies in half for smaller denominations during the 10th and 11th centuries.

 The crosses were there to make this easier and to deter 'clipping,' the crime of shaving small amounts of silver off the edges of coins and collecting it. This coin may have even been in Viking hands!

 

Oh, and Aethelred wasn't actually 'Unready,' but rather from the Old English unræd meaning "poorly advised"; it is a pun on his name, which means "well advised".

£90 (P&P FREE to UK, other locations please ask)
