NEWP: Milan 1778 Maria Theresia Scudo (6 Lire)

4 posts in this topic

Inspired by EVP's recent pickup at the CICF I saw this type for sale. I unfortunately had to sell lots of "Taler" to fund it but such is the hobby and budgeting.


I actually missed this one on the prior HA auction and it fortunately did not sell and went back to consignor. Awesome eye appeal and very tough to find nice as apparently the Italians did not really like the Empress Maria Theresia which led them to deface many of these coins making higher grade uncommon. I carefully searched in past auction records unable to find many at this level. One of the better pieces in the collection for me.
