Gentlemen,

I think that it is a Półtorak / 3 Polker of Zygmunt III Waza. Please, correct me if I am wrong and help me with mint and year.

Thanks a lot!

Confirmed. KM 41 (in my 5th edition, KM shows the wrong coin). Date is two digits above the globus cruciger. Left is clearly a two. Right could be a 6. If so, date is 1626.

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

Thanks a lot, Peter! Which page in Krause catalog were you checking?

Is it correct: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces136387.html ?

Page 1441 in KM. Right page from the Numista web site. Numista has the correct picture, legend on arms side starts with SIGIS:DG, while KM shows a coin with GVS ADO instead.

I see, thanks! You are right, there is a wrong photo in Krause.

What do you think about variations Górecki B.26.1.a - Górecki B.26.1.d?

I know neither the author nor the book. Google books offers no joy either, so I suspect it is a learned article. Anyway, getting all the variants of a 17th century coin type together is akin to figuring out how many dies were used to produce the coin; a rather pointless exercise in my eyes.

Strange. Why Numista did not mention Krause number. Why Krause has been using the wrong photo.

Can't answer for what others are doing. Google poltorak "3 polker" pictures and you get loads of coins like yours and also the coin in KM in Numista. HTH.
