Hi all,

I tend to agree that the obverse could be a winged lion, maybe a tornesello of Venice?Huh  I can make out on the reverse what could be 'MOC.'  Maybe a tornesello of Alvise Mocenigo (1570-1577)Huh

Hi folks,

When I first looked at the photos, I thought of Venice also. The obverse does look somewhat like a winged lion. But there is something "off" about it. It doesn't look right. Could the obverse be over-struck?

Hi folks,

For comparison purposes, I have a silver Venetian coin with a winged lion (scroll down, third coin):

Hi all,

The attachment is an example of the Venetian Tornesello that I was referring to above.  After some research, I do not think Alvise Mocenigo is a viable attribution for this coin.  His reign as doge was too late for the period in which this coin was probably struck.

Cheers,

David

Hi Young,

I would feel very comfortable attributing your coin as a Tornesello of Tommaso Mocenigo (1414-1423). I think your comparison pictures are very similar.  That was fun, wasn't it?
