better than very fine and very rare.


This coin is an issue of a previouly unrecorded assyer or an unfinished die, in the latter case we have three candidates:
1. I - Q = Hieronimo Querini 1528 but no coins of this denomination recorded for this assayer.

2.I -M = Hieronimo Malipiero 1531 Mocenigo ref:CNI VII pg.257.150

3.I-D = Giuho Dona 1533 Mocenigo ref: CNI VII pg.259.164

The Venetians were very careful controlling the output from the mint both the quality of the coins and the artistic merit and it is hard to imagine that they allowed a coin to circulate without the full initials of the mint assayer.
