Type out some of the lettering for us. Maybe a stater ?


The pictures are bad, but if someone knows the type, they will pick it from those

The coin is a gold Zecchino (ducat) from Venice. It should weigh 3.5 grams of 98% pure gold.


The obverse features a Doge kneeling before St. Mark, while the reverse features Christ in an oval frame.


Hard to judge condition from the photos but it looks XF or so.


Here is a similiar one on eBay with excellent photos...




Your's looks like it was from the mid 1700's. It's worth about $400 if it's real.
