CNG 112, Lot: 800. Estimate $400.

ANGLO-SAXON, Continental Sceattas. Circa 710/5-720. AR Sceatt (13mm, 1.21 g). Series G, type 3a. Quentovic mint. Diademed head right; cross pommée before / Standard with central pellet-in-annulet, saltires in three angles, trefoil of pellets in one. Abramson 21.20; cf. EMC 8 Series G, 302-3 (for type); SCBC 800. Lightly toned, irregular shaped flan. EF.

While they undoubtedly circulated in England, Series G sceattas are found in a widely diffuse pattern, with minor concentrations in Sussex and Yorkshire, which suggests that they may in fact be continental imports. Metcalf, in his catalog of the Ashmolean museum, notes a small concentration of the type in Northern France, and suggests that they were struck at the major Channel center of Quentovic.
