Huszár 54; Toth-Kiss 13.8 sigla a3.7/41-42; Unger 50; Réthy I 56; Frynas H.11.8; Adamovszky A83; Kovács pp. 196 ff
Hungary. Béla II, the Blind (1131-1141)

AR denar (average: .21 g., 10.5 mm.), .19 g., 10.53 mm. max.

Obv: Three columns, above them two crescents, E-E to the sides.

Rev: Lines and crescents instead of an inscription, cross with four wedges.

Struck in Esztergom.

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.
