Hello and thank you for your answer. I didn't find a Sear-number for this coin. And second I wanted to know how rare is this type of coin.

Byzantine Coins / Another Alexius Imitation or?
« Last post by Simon on Today at 03:07:43 pm »
As per Forum rules I created a new thread, another coin that I took as an imitation of Alexius Comnenus. As pointed out on another thread that coin was Alexius but now believed to be from the Trebizond.

This coin, again cross on back, in fact a cross within a cross surrounded by a body of dots.  The reverse, has the ruler with scepter cruiceger ; holds in r. hand scepter cruciger and in l. Globus cruciger. , no legend I can see.

I just got the coin in today's mail.

No match in Bendalls "Intro to the coinage of the Empire of Trebizoid." Also http://www.constantinethegreatcoins.com/articles/Bendall_Trebizond/Bendall_Trebizond.pdf  a paper post by another friendly member on another board.

3 grams for 15 mm is rather heavy. Can it be lead?

This is 15mm and 3 grams. I have not seen anything similar so no clue where to start. Any help appreciated.

Thank you,
Charlie
