Series C2 sceatta which imitates a Series A. Early Medieval date (c. AD 700 - c. AD 740). Similar in appearance to a North 40.

Notes:

TIC is substituted by a runic inscription. The sub-variety is characterised by the dotted neck and the regular crosses on the reverse. It obviously imitates a Series A and is Kentish.
