Series R Sceatta Research

R2 Metcalf Variety 8b to 11.


I was only able to find nine examples of these varieties. I explored the EMC database at the Fitzwilliam, the British Museum’s Sylloge 63, the Ashmolean Museum’s database and Naismith’s MEC 8, the ex Abramson collection and looked and my collection. Six examples of five varieties is a grossly inadequate number to justify a research booklet! These coins are surprisingly rare.The diagrams of the types may prove useful to those who not familiar with the different types of the R2 series.
