Andronicus II ?

(1/1)

wileyc:
Style reminds me of Adronicus II, Thessalonica mint. at first, came to me as sbvc2458, but that is not it.


possible concentric circles?
 
Rev: single figure, to right cross in circle, star above, to left is star lower field

1.43 g and 22mm acoss

what am I missing?

thoughts?

glebe:
SBCV 2383 of Andronicus II.
The device above left on the reverse is a Palaeologan monogram.
A very common type but good examples are hard to find - the two below are amongst the better ones I have on file.

Thanks Glebe.

wileyc:
to add a touch more, thanks much for the help, I would not have caught that ID,  both Sears and Grierson do not mention the star in the lower right field or Palaeologan monogram above cross in cicle on left.
