Rev: [+ LADISCLAVS RE] (decaying legend), Cross

Struck 1083-1089 (per Gyöngyössy, whose dating has not been accepted by later catalogers and appears to be speculative) in Esztergom.

According to Huszár, this coin appears with 20 mm., 17 mm. and 14 mm. diameters, corresponding to Réthy I 28, 29 (smaller) and 30 (much smaller), and roughly corresponding to Adamovszky A35 (18.5 mm.) and A35a (16 mm. with reverse decaying legend variety). Gyöngyössy classifies both large (19.6 and 17.2 mm.) and small (14.4 mm.) specimens as Réthy I 28.

Huszár rarity 9, Toth-Kiss rarity 100, Unger rarity 45, Frynas rarity N.
