Great coins Stkp - it seems that you and quadrans have cornered the Hungarian medieval coin market.  Grin

Thanks, Alex. I've done my very very small share to make a dent in the Hungarian coin market. Between the coins posted by Quadrans and those that I have posted, I hope that FORVM has become a resource for the occasional collector who runs across a coin that is outside of his/her area of experience. I'm hoping that other dedicated collectors of this coinage find FORVM and upload their collections as well. Stkp

I recently added two denarii of Maria (1382-1387 solo reign; 1387-1395 with husband Sigismund/Zsigmond of Luxembourg) to my gallery. Both are Huszár 569, Pohl 114, Unger 443, Réthy II 116, Frynas H.26.4:

Pohl 114-1, Unger 443a. This coin is interesting because of the unusual cross-hatching beneath the crown and also because the cross does not comport with any of the cross styles recorded by Toma. Unfortunatly, the reverse is double struck so that the legend cannot be discerned, which detracts from the coin:

Pohl 114-3, Unger 443c. Struck in Székesfehérvár/Alba Regia in 1386-1395:

It has been nine months since I added any medieval Hungarian coins to my collection. I recently added four:

Károly Róbert/Charles Robert (1307-1342), AR denar. Huszár 479, Pohl 36-2, Unger 378a, Réthy II 8, Frynas H.24.31
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158458

Károly Róbert/Charles Robert (1307-1342), AR denar. Huszár 497, Pohl 54-2, Unger 394m, Réthy II 15, Frynas H.24.47. I have quite a few of these and collect them by mint-mark.

Nice, find, this is the so-called "short patriarchal cross" type, rarest than the long cross, type...  Thumbs Up

You know, I have also two-piece in my gallery, but different legend variation.

Congratulation  Thumbs Up

I rarely have the pleasure of rummaging through a large number of unattributed medieval Hungarian coins. I recently had the opportunity to sort through several hundred parvii issued by Sigismund/Zsigmund of Luxembourg (King of Hungary 1387-1437; Holy Roman Emperor 1433-1437) between 1387 and 1427 (per Huszár, Pohl, Unger, Frynas and Gyöngyössy, although it terminated in 1410 per Engel) and acquired seven with privy marks that I did not yet have. They are all Huszár 580, Pohl 119, Unger 451, Réthy II 125A, Frynas H.27.8:

Pohl 119-12, Unger 451s, with an m to right above shield
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161257

Pohl 119-14, Unger 451u, with an o to right above shield, struck at Offenbánya/Baia de Arieș, Romania (per Pohl)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161256

Pohl 119-15, Unger 451v, with a P to right above shield, struck at Pécs/Baia de Arieș, Romania (per Pohl)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161099

Pohl 119-49, Unger 451ξ with a K-K above shield, struck at Körmöcbánya/Kremnica, Slovakia (per Pohl)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161100

Pohl 119-55, Unger 451ω, with an m-6 above shield, struck by Markus von Nuremberg in 1404-1405 (per Pohl)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161102

Pohl 119-62, Unger 451ff, with a P-W above shield, struck at Pécs/Baia de Arieș, Romania (per Pohl)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161103

Pohl 119-76, Unger 451ππ, with a K between upper cross-arms, struck at Körmöcbánya/Kremnica, Slovakia (per Pohl)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161104

The type was issued with over 150 privy marks. After the phase-out of the sigla generations earlier, none of the medieval Hungarian emissions bore close to the number of privy or control marks found on the coins of Sigismund/Zsigmund. I have encountered no literature addressing the reason for this explosion of marks and hope that it is addressed by Josef Kiss in a forthcoming book in his wonderful series.

In addition to these, I plucked two "gems" from the lot, also parvii issued by Sigismund/Zsigmund but considerably less common:

Huszár 581, Pohl 120, Unger 453, Réthy II 125B, Frynas H.27.9, struck in 1404-1405 (per Pohl, Huszár, Unger & Frynas) in Buda by Markus von Nürnberg, oberkammergraf (per Pohl). This type is identical to the standard parvus except that it bears an m rather than a crown between one of the cross-arms.
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161252

Huszár 582, Pohl 121-1, Unger 452, Réthy II 126, Frynas H.27.10, struck in 1402 (per Huszár, Unger & Frynas) or 1402-1403 (per Pohl) in Buda (per Pohl). This type is also identical to the standard parvus except that it bears a Bohemian lion instead of a Brandenburg eagle in the shield.
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-161254

While the standard type is given rarity ratings of Huszár/Pohl 4; Unger 5; Frynas C, these types are rated as Huszár/Pohl 5; Unger 15; Frynas N; and Huszár/Pohl 5; Unger 15+; Frynas N, respectively. I already had two of the Huszár 581 type and one of the Huszár 582 type in my gallery, but nevertheless grabbed these as well. I am always gratified to recognize and find hidden "gems" in a large lot.
