My opinion: old Anglo-Saxon penny. Before 1066.
My opinion: not Anglo-Saxon, but mainland Europe, 11th century.
Notice that a bust on both sides is uncommon in this age. Now, one figure wears a crown, that will be the supreme King. I think i can read something like "Henricus Rex". The other figure will then be a subordinate ruler. Because he has a long staff to his side this will be a bishop. Looking for this combination i get to:
Bishopric Utrecht (the Netherlands) Bisschop Willem van Ponte, under the rule of the German king Heinrich III or IV, minted in Groningen. ref: Ilisch, JMP 1997/8
THCoins, I think You nailed it!
I now found pretty similar coin from sixbid
Thank You very much!
