Commentary


Pour ce type, M. Crawford a relevé une estimation de 143 coins de droit et de 179 coins de revers pour cinq variétés différentes. Ce denier est plus rare que ne le laissent supposer les catalogues de référence. Chaque lettre de l’alphabet, présentée en association avec un globule ou seule, n’est en fait jamais liée à plus d’un coin de droit.
