Title: Question about sigla variety of 1046-60 Hungarian Denar
Post by: Edward D on October 24, 2018, 01:51:55 pm
I have a 1046-60 Hungarian Denar under King Andreas I;Huszar 9,Unger 5. I see 2 points in each of the inner circle quadrants and what looks like a point under REX. Using the Coinage of Arpadian Catalogue Vol. 1/Opitz,I think it looks like sigla variety a8.1/78. The 2 points in the lower right quadrant is confusing me. Thank you.

Edward, I'm at work right now and don't have the book handy. I suspect that Joe will have answered your question before I get around to doing so. It may be a busy evening for me. Stkp

Dear Edwards,

Your coin is "a9.1/81" because you have one dot(pellet) at the end of the REX this is the 9th dot...
