Theft of Anglo-Saxon penny of Archbishop Wulfred with www.finds.org.uk reference ID BH-24D8C4

Theft of Anglo-Saxon penny of Archbishop Wulfred with www.finds.org.uk reference ID BH-24D8C4

Dear Sir/Madam,I would like to alert you to the theft of an Anglo-Saxon penny of Archbishop Wulfred penny with the www.finds.org.uk reference ID BH-24D8C4, which you can see here:
I have also attached a photo of both sides of the coin in PNG format. The penny seems to be a unique muled version with the typical Wulfred bust (that goes down to the edge of the flan) on the obverse side, but with shortened legend "+VVL-FRED" rather than the usual "VVLFREDI ARCHIEPISCOPI", and a non-portrait issue of Baldred on the reverse, with the moneyer's name "SAEBERHT".
 The coin was stolen in transit some time between the 26th July 2014, when the coin was posted by the seller in the UK, and the 9th August 2014, when the package arrived, empty, at the buyer's home in France.
If you are ever offered this coin for sale or is see it for sale anywhere, I would be grateful if you could let me know, and if you don't think it would jeopardise the recovery of the coin, to also alert the police. I would very much like to know who was responsible for the theft of this coin, but much more important to me is to have the coin returned to its rightful owner.
