Mints and Moneyers of the Expanding Cross type of Edward the Confessor – Hugh Pagan

This note offers an up-to-date listing of the moneyers for Edward the Confessor’s  Expanding Cross type, recording which are currently known for the Heavy series of the type, struck to a weight averaging 1.65g, and those known for the Light series of the type, struck to a weight averaging 1.09g, and adding notes to explain the addition of some moneyers to those previously recorded for the type, and the removal of others. The opportunity has also been taken to record the existence of coins of Light series weight which have been struck from Heavy series dies, and other instances where coins are of anomalous weight.
