Venetian, possibly 12 soldi?
« on: November 16, 2019, 03:42:51 PM »
Perhaps a 12 Soldi from the early 1600s which my Krause doesn't cover.
Copper, 20 mm, 1.7 gr. 90° rotation.

12 Bagattini (1 Soldo) perhaps. Which one? Depends on whether one can read the letters on the lion's side. Should be SMV and the name of the doge. CAROL CON?

The opposite side to the lion might end in TIR.
And thank you, I did intend to write 12 bagattini.

I didn't realise that this series was also produced in C18th, and it's starting to look like C# 2 ND 1752-1762

Another possibility: S M VE ALOY CON (Alvise Contarini). Lets hope that someone else will be better in reading the name.

Yes, I have looked at that and it is a strong contender.
