Commentary


Pour le monétaire ALDINVS, le Moneta ne recense que 9 exemplaires. Bien que la nature du métal rende difficile l’établissement de liaisons de coins, notre plomb est très proche du n° 22-25 de la RN 1996 qui sont tous issus des mêmes coins. Si notre exemplaire a été frappé avec les mêmes coins, il s’agit soit d’un essai de frappe, soit d’un faux anciennement doré fabriqué au sein même de l’atelier.
Quoi qu’il en soit cette “monnaie” est un rare témoignage particulièrement intéressant !.
