    Ribe – Northumbria- a connection?

    In the viking coin the symbol made up of three triangles is the so called "Valknut" which is sometimes associated with Odin https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valknut

    Edward I penny?

    Hi Dave and welcome! These pence can be very difficult to identify properly, especially the first times... looking at your images I would say: London mint, class 10cf2 Matteo

    Recent Hammered Acquisitions

    thank you! Even if I admit that I knew yet... It is a very detailed study and yesterday I spent a couple of hours trying to classify properly my coin, however, I still haven't found the exact classification ...

    Export License

    Yes I think you are right... Before I was thinking that this is not my first coin from a UK hoard , however they are not so recents ( 90s ) and so even there are papers dedicated they can't be in the system.

    Export License

    Thanks Rob , yes there is also here in Italy a similar procedure . However I was wondering why in this case it has been requested while for many others coins I bought ( in some cases also older and rarer ) not. Does it just depends by different auction policies or during the the last months it is changed something ?

    Export License

    Hi all At the last Timeline auction I won this lot https://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?auction=4534&category=128220&lot=3720093 attracted in particular by his provenance . Anyway I see from the auction's website that it is has been requested the export license for this lot; do you know more or less how much time is requested to obtain it ? I bought dozens of time from UK auctions but this is the first time that happens to me , is it a consequence of Brexit ?? Thanks to all Matteo
