Notes:     Sale: Triton IX, Lot: 2237 "Heremod", moneyer Rare. From the Dr. Thomas Dailey Collection.The East Anglia pennies of Edward, typified by the numerous examples found in the 1958 Morely St. Peter hoard (described in detail in SCBI 26), are the products of an irregular mint established in the lands taken by Edward after 920, when he ousted the Danes from East Anglia. There are extensive die links between the pennies of named moneyers and completely blundered types. Heremod was probably a moneyer at Hereford or Shrewsbury in Mercia.
