Good very fine for issue.

The existance of a gold coin in the name of Levon obverse and Hetoum reverse has lead Fr.Au.Sekoulian to consider the issue as that of Levon II and that this silver tram� was his coronation issue.It is more plausable, however,� that the Levon/Hetoum gold Tahekhan was struck with a tram die left over from the reign of Levon I and that it is in fact an issue of Hetoum I who married Levons daughter Zabel ( Isabel ) in AD 1226.The fact that this die or a similar one by the same die cutter was used to strike a gold coin would place this tram issue towards the end of the reign of Levon I and perhaps into the period of regency AD 1219-1222.
