Malmer chain 137, dies 738/1780; Hauberg 2 (Lund); Hede II 2 (same obv. die). Slightly double struck on obverse. Near VF. Very rare.

Malmer (p. 48) attributes this issue to the Sigtuna mint, as lead die impressions from this chain were found there, though notes that die transfers between England, Lund, and Sigtuna are common in this series.
