About very fine, weak strike in areas.

Schulumberger in his work on crusader coins assigned this coinage to Jerusalem.These coins are found in substantial amounts in Cypurs to warrent a re-attribution to Cyprus.It is possible that Guy had these coins struck at the mint of Jerusalem and bought over to Cyprus for circulation throughtout the island.
