This coin has been withdrawn from our auction 56 because it is sharing its dies with a well known series of cast forgeries. But due to the fact, that the coin offerd here is clearly struck, the die link is not a criterion to condemn the coin as forgery.

Condition: Very fine.

Weight: 25.85 g.
Diameter: 35 mm.
