Found The Rodings, Essex, 9 January 2001.

This is called Linear X-type because there is a line through the middle of the corn ear and a small X (moneyer's privy mark) below the letters CA. The pellet above the M is visible on the Van Arsdell specimen, but not noted. You can also sometimes see short lines indicating hairs of the horse's mane.
