Very fine, Minor edge nick.)"Altho the cataloguers identified this as a scudo stretto (Dav-1366), the weight marks this specimen as a scudo largo (Dav-1365 or Dav-LS555) of a type struck 1670-1719. It is quite rare and this lot sold for a fraction of its catalog value. Two, three, four and six scudi exist.
Recorded mintage: unknown but rare.
