day ladies and gentlemen.
First of all apologies for the bad quality
of the pics - maximum my cheap
phone can produce.
I have this Double Tournois I would like you to help
Badly worn - but from what I read it could be Henri III Valois on the reverse
Under the portrait
, slightly right side
, I can see L and this might come from FRAN ET POL
(not sure but I think Henri III was the only king
using this term).
is greatly appreciated. Perhaps there is someone experienced in French
15th-16th-17th century coins and can compare the portrait
(or what's left from the portrait
in my case
I am not a medieval
coins collector but I admit I'd be more than happy, for personal reasons, if the coin is struck under Henri III and not any other king
And also - is it worth trying to clean it? not sure if that green substance (verdigris?) will damage the coin and not sure if cleaning will destroy it.
Many thanks in advance.
------later edit - it was identified as Henri III - Rouen Mint
I would like to thank everybody who read this topic.
