Tassarolo, Luigino
« on: September 23, 2018, 04:52:23 PM »
This is a fun little coin,

Luigino's it seems were minted across Europe usually in dubious circumstances,  some were made by the French feudal state of Dombes... but this is a copy of a Dombes Luigino made by the Italian state of Tassarolo - which adds another layer of dubiousness...

I am impressed, andyg. This is a coin with a complicated and very interesting story. For later use: the story is here.

Thanks, but maybe not. Some Luiginos are French, others, like yours, Italian, some Dutch. I'd like to get them on the appropriate boards where possible, but a link to the "story" thread is nice.
