Reference : Szego-134.

Grade : VF

Obverse : Eagle head above a castle turret, between two turret-like wings.

Reverse : Uncertain.  Szego lists the reverse of this type as indeterminate, which means between all the specimens he saw, he could not work out what the reverse type was.

This coin was struck by the vierschlag method where by the reverse is struck first, and then the coin is turned over and the obverse is struck.  In the process of striking the obverse, most of the reverse is obliterated (specimens with strong reverses do not exist).
