Nice specimen, most details are clear. I think this is Dy 377A (1389), as the O in DOMINI and in KAROLVS is round, rather than oval. Plain point is a filled dot, or just dot, as a hollow dot is known as an annulet in British numismatics.

Thanks a lot, Peter!

Do you have a catalogue photo for the reference? And what would be the mint - Romans?

In most cases, Duplessy has beautiful, clear drawings, but he has no illustration for 377A. He does show 377.

Yes, Point 2 is Romans in the period 1389 - 1418.
