FootnoteEx Mack [from Spink, 1921], and SNC Nov. 1984 (7450), May 1987 (2981).
Mack’s tentative attribution of this coin to Winchester, which he himself doubted (Sylloge, p.xiii) is without foundation; from what remains of the reverse legend it seems more plausible to attribute the coin to the moneyer Ælfred at Canterbury, known from at least two other coins in this type (BNJ 1910, p.9, and Thomas Bliss Sale, 1916, lot 161)
