Maine Penny

Maine Penny
Minted in Norway between A.D. 1065 and 1080, this small silver coin was excavated at the Goddard site, a large prehistoric Indian trade village in Penobscot Bay, Maine. It is thought to be evidence of an extensive northern native trade network rather than direct contact between Vikings and late prehistoric Indians.
