These sceattas are thought to emanate from the former Rhine mouth area, Frisia, particularly the emporia of Domburg and Dorestad.

They also circulated in early Anglo-Saxon Britain and the primary catalogue reference is from the Spink Standard Catalogue of British Coins.

Spink Early Anglo-Saxon, Section C: Continental issue Sceattas (c.695-c.740), Series E, Variety D.
