Huszár accepted the attribution of this emission to Béla II “only with reservation.” It had been attributed by Réthy (in 1899) to Stephen II (István II in Hungarian) (1116-1131) and by Hóman (in 1916) to Béla II, which attribution was accepted by Unger (in 1958). More recently, Frynas but apparently not Toth-Kiss, shares Huszár's reservations.

Huszár rarity 9, Toth-Kiss rarity 40, Unger rarity 30, Frynas rarity N. Toth-Kiss catalog number and position (between 41 and 42) for unrecorded sigla assigned by József Géza Kiss via personal email communication on December 14, 2018.
