This specimen is one of a type struck for the Bourbon Kingdom of the Two Sicilies 1839-51. The SCWC notes that 240 tornesi = 6 tari = 1 piastra, where a piastra is roughly equal to a peso. This coin was worth 1/120 of a piastra; the denomination was struck 1825-59. Other copper coinage of the period included one, 1½, three, four, five, eight and ten tornesi. The Bourbon dynasty, rulers of Naples since 1735, were evicted by Napoleon to make room for his brother Joseph in 1806 but returned in 1815. This specimen was lot 31603 in Heritage sale 3029 (New York, January 2014), where it sold for $199.75. The catalog description[1] noted, "Naples & Sicily. Ferdinand II 2 Tornesi 1852, KM 327, MS63 Brown NGC. Well-struck details with glossy brown surfaces. Overall a very appealing coin."

Recorded mintage: unknown but a common date.

Specification: 6.24 g, copper, 24.5 mm diameter.

Catalog reference: KM 327 (formerly C145a).
