Huszár 546, Pohl 88-1, Unger 437a, Réthy II 88, Frynas H.25.43
Lajos/Louis I (1342-1382)

AR obulus, .30 g., 12.57 mm. max., 90°

Obv: mVnETA LODOVICI, Patriarchal cross.

Rev: + DEI GRACIA R VGARIE (with the ARs in ligature), shield with coat of arms (Árpadian stripes and Angevin fleur de lis).

The type was struck in 1372 per Pohl and Gyöngyössy, in 1371 per Huszár, in 1371-1372 per Unger and ca. 1371 per Frynas.

Huszár/Pohl rarity 5, Unger value 25, Frynas rarity N. The obverse of this coin is unusual in that (a) there are no pellets at the ends of the cross arms; and (b) the obverse legend starts with mVn rather than mOn. Coin No. 730 in Gyöngyössy (which bears a lily mint mark) also bears these features. The reverse legend is variable. This coin comports with the reverse legend in Unger.
