Note #1: The dealer mis-attributed this coin as Rhodes.

Note #2: The Varesi tag and old tags are actually from a different
example of this issue. At one time, I had 2 examples of this issue,
because one was mis-attributed. I kept the mis-attributed example (the
Lindgren example). I sold the Varesi example, but I kept the tags.
