Quote from: Figleaf on January 23, 2012, 12:32:48 AMTried to find an écu with the small letters SIT very close to the border, as visible on the other coin. The letters all seem to be of similar size. Those on the écu aux trois couronnes (Dy 1568) seem close to the edge, but that is a later type than the écu aux huit L shown. Those on the écu de Flandres (Dy 1561) are close also and a later type. Dy 1560 is too rare to be a candidate and struck later also. All types have normal size letters. Or do you think the flan for an écu was stamped with the die of a demi-écu?
