Papal States 1732Bol quattrino rev Tom F.jpg

This rude and nearly unidentifiable coin is a quattrino minted in Bologna in 1732, one of a type made there 1730-40 for Clement XII. It has a very low catalog value tho it is probably quite scarce. In Bologna, six quattrini made a bolognino, whereas in the rest of the Papal States, five quattrini made a baiocco. This mismatch was rectified in 1777.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 2.1 g, copper.

Catalog reference: KM 190, Ber-2693.
