but they are not in Krause....

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

funny, I saw the four but wrote three... oops.
Anyhow, 1.52g and 2.98g

Have things improved since my 4th ed 1601-1700 catalogue?
The only coins under Milan are large silvers.

Thanks very much.  :)

Both heavy, according to KM. They state 1.70 - 2.93 for the quattrino and 1.09 - 1.49 for the sesino. I don't see a better solution, though.

Yes, the 5th edition has more elaborate listings. Previous editions floated largely on big silver and gold and neglected small silver and copper.
