One of 42 silver coins from two or more Scandinavian hoards of the 10th and 11th centuries. These came from the collection of James Curle (d.1944) of Melrose, Roxburghshire, and were part of lot 158 at Glendinings, 19 July 2000. The dirhems (nos. 2-41), which are heavily cut and tested, are likely to come from a 10th-century hoard, while the European coins, of which there were rather more in the lot, clearly came from a different hoard, deposited in the mid-11th century.: CM.764-2000
