It is believed that this countermark was applied to mainly Serbian coins towards the end of Dusan's rule in the Black Sea regions as no coins of his successor Uros V ( 1355-1371 ) have been recorded with these countermarks. The coins selected for countermarking are usually clipped, damaged or worn.
