This coin is very touched up and restored. It does not appear anywhere in the auction announcement that it has been restored even superficially. This coin was sold for a very large sum, but in reality it should have almost no value. Just look at the photos of how it was before it was very restored.


Esta moneda esta muy retocada y restaurada. En el anuncio de la subasta no aparece en ningun lugar que haya sido restaurada ni siquiera superficialmente. Esta moneda se vendio por una suma muy elevada, pero en realidad no deberia tener casi valor. Basta con observar las fotos de como estaba antes de haber sido muy restaurada.

Might the referenced berries actually be olives?

Wish I could see this in hand. ive wondered if this is F/I, or F/BR - which is what it looks like to me. Very curious initial, as the top of the F is like a T. Reminds me of the Trevino coinage (TR) of Potosí.

Its so interesting, as the M looks placed over a C, though I know of no assayers from Madrid who used C, so it must be BR. Fantastic coin.

Pretty sure this is 1633. Doesnt match to A's coinage of that period either.

Looks like B to me...

Same revers die as the coin from CNG 114 lot 1008 for Constans.

Same revers die as the coin from NAC 111 lot 240 for Constantius II.

Sister coin to Hermitage kept count I.I.Tolstoy's 5 kopecks described in GM catalog (No.334, T.XVII, 6.): "Eagle image is the same as eagle on Dassier rouble 1757. It was probably a prototype for 5 kopecks of this and following years". Presumably struck at the St. Petersburg Mint with model coins for other mints.

This is Madrid, assayer C. Note the star at top. Same as found on other issues in silver and gold for Philip II. Much rarer than a Mexican issue, and far more closely related to Panama issues in style. :)

This is 1722. The style of the coin should give that away. This is the Neat New Style coinage that followed the 1714-15 redesign. 1712 is the original bourbon shield, for which there are two types- but all of which in the old style. No gap in the tressures either. Only on NNS issues is there a gap, or "four" tressures. The floating Austria block is also a big giveaway. Done in the Madrid style, between 1714-1724 Philip V only. The floating austria bar, and curved lines in old burgundy change in 1724 LUIS I issues, to a full Austria bar, comprised of two close horizontal lines that expand the entire portion of the quadrant and the curved "(((" lines in Old Burgundy change to straight lines \\\ and stay that way following the LUIS I redesigns. Hope that helps.

This is a modern fake. It looks nothing like any genuine Avitus published in, say, RIC or other scholarly publications.
