Huszár 37 var.; Toth-Kiss 11.7 var. sigla --; Unger 28 var.; Réthy I 45 var.; Frynas H.9.5 var.; Adamovszky A52 var.; Kovács pp. 171 ff
Hungary. Kálmán/Coloman the Bookish (1095-1116)

AR denar (average: .50 g., 12-13.5 mm.), .39 g., 12.59 mm. max.

Obv: + COLVMBANVS RE (bungled legend), Cross.

Rev: + LADISLAVS RE (decaying legend), cross with wedges.

Huszár rarity 8, Toth-Kiss rarity 25, Unger rarity 35, Frynas rarity N. This is a variant with a bungled obverse legend and a larger cross on the obverse. It is neither described nor depicted in any of the catalogs and is possibly a contemporary counterfeit, per personal email communication with József Géza Kiss on December 14, 2018.

Ladislaus/László I (1077-1095) was canonized in 1192. His name typically appeared, albeit in an increasingly decaying form, on the reverse of 12th century emissions such as this.
