Item:153263101898Superb X Rare Herbert I of Maine France 1015 - 1036 AD Silver Denier Coin;1.27 gm, 20 mmHerbert I (died 13 April 1035), called Wakedog, was the Count of Maine from 1017 until his death. He had a turbulent career with an early victory that may have contributed to his later decline. He was the son of Hugh III and succeeded his father as count of Maine. Herbert was, at times, a nominal vassal of his neighbor Fulk III Nerra, Count of Anjou but otherwise considered himself independent and obtained his nickname "Wake-dog" for having to constantly resist the intrusions of his Angevin neighbors to the south. From the time Herbert became count in 1017, he was almost constantly at war with Avesgaud de Bellême, Bishop of Le Mans. …at some time between 1020 and 1030 coins were struck with the monogram of Count Herbert and the motto signum Dei vivi and continued with this design through the twelfth century. The coins at le Mans were of such weight and fine quality they were among the most widely accepted in western France.All items are from my personal collection spanning 40 years.
