A classic required for every historical collection - a nice silver penny of William I, (The Conqueror) from Normandy who displaced Harold II in 1066. William struck coins from 1066 to 1087. This one was struck in Canterbury (?) and is known as a PAXS type, obverse: crowned facing bust with sceptre, crown type 1, breaking linear circle at bottom, legend commences lower left "+PILLELM REX". This one features a nice bold full face portrait with some incomplete details in the legend. London mint (?), Wulfstan is the moneyer, S-1257. Specific mint/moneyer is unknown to me - can anyone help? I can provide additional photos.
Another description of this type:
GREAT BRITAIN. England. William I, the Conqueror. (King, 1066-1087). (1066-87) Edwine AR Penny. OB: + PILLEM REX AN. Crowned and diademed bust facing with a star to either side /Rx: + EDPII ON LVND. Cross botonnée over quadrilateral. SCBC-1257; BMC 8 (Paxs type); North 848
