An Early Medieval silver sceatta, Continental series E, later type (Variety A-related), 710-765 AD, probably an Abramson type E 150. Martin Allen has recorded it as EMC 2012.0083, and commented that it belongs to a secondary variety of Series E that does not really fit into the typology of Metcalf and Op den Velde. This is a very diverse coinage that sometimes defies precise classification.
