Obv: Crude lettering/design. 


Rev: ROB/ERT/ONC/ANT - with ON and AN ligated. Lettering on reverse is a different style and a better imitation than that on the obverse.

Continental Imitations: Class 5 of Canterbury


Imitations of class 5 VLC pennies are the most numerous in the Brussels hoard. Again, London and Canterbury are the predominant mints imitated, though there are class 5 imitations of some of the provincial mints, despite the fact that these mints were not operating at the time class 5 coins were being minted; examples include Gloucester and Wilton.
