Regarding the Otto coin I attached earlier in page 3. Another numismatist says that this coin is Otto III instead of Otto I (and refers to Peter Ilisch 1990, pp 128-130) and probably not minted in the beginning of Otto III reign. Our Otto coin is 16 mm in diameter and weighs approximately 1,32 grams. Any comments?


Ilisch is a respected scientist and his book is later than Dannenberg's.

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