In AD 1204, during the 4th Crusade, some of the Crusader leaders sacked the Byzantine city of Constantinople and set up their own small Kingdom, which was maintained until 1261.  They produced coins of the Byzantine trachea style, which were nearly all over struck on earlier Byzantine examples, often cut down to a smaller size, and normally very crudely struck.  The example here was picked for a superior strike, from a recent hoard of high quality specimens.
