Huszár 580, Pohl 119-_, Unger 451_, Réthy II 125A, Frynas H.27.8
Hungary. Sigismund/Zsigmund of Luxembourg (1387-1437; Holy Roman Emperor 1433-1437)

AR parvus; .20 g., 10.16 mm. max., 180°

Obv: Four-part shield (Árpádian stripes and eagle), S-V-R above and flanking.

Rev: Cross with four crowns, π between lower cross arms.

The type was struck in 1387-1427 (Huszár, Pohl, Unger, Frynas and Gyöngyössy, although it terminated in 1410 per Engel).

The parvus (also called the “small denar” fillér or pankart) was struck with an average nominal fineness of 0.353 silver. Because of many worn out and counterfeit coins it was pulled from circulation after 1427 (per Huszár). Although not specifically discussed in this context in Engel, the parvus must have experienced the same rampant debasement as the denar did.

Huszár/Pohl rarity 4; Unger rarity 5; Frynas rarity C. Unrecorded privy mark.
