better than very fine.
Ex.John Slocum collection , Sothebys London sale 6.3.1997 part lot 169.
Ex Thomas Ollive Mabbot collection Schulman Gallery Auction New York 27-29 October 1969 lot 5152 ( illustrated Pl.29).

On the basis of the obverse design this coin is clearly related to an issue attributed to Joscelin I or II ( Met pg.38.Plate 7.118, Pesant in Spink N.C.1992 No 8)� these coins, however,� have an inscription on the reverse reading IEVSEΛIN.The obverse of Pesants No.8 has exactly the same design as this coin in that it has a cross in left and right fields.

This coin was described by the cataloger in the Schulman sale as a coin of Marach issued by Richard Circa AD 1115 and in a footnote said that Professor Mabbott thought it might be an issue of Anchioch and even noted that the reverse bearing the cross of Jerusalem resembled issues of Cyprus.
