Aureo sale 261, lot 265
This specimen was lot 265 in Auero sale 261 (Barcelona, July 2014), where it sold for €60 (about US$96 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1684. Carlos II. Nápoles. AG/A. 1 tari. Limpiada. Rayas. (MBC). (Charles II, kingdom of Naples, one tari of 1684. Cleaned, adjustment marks, Very fine.)"
The listings in the SCWC for Naples and Sicily are very sketchy and do not include this coin. The SCWC does note that 12 carlini = six tari = one piastra, where a piastra is roughly equal to a peso. Charles II, the last Hapsburg king of Spain, was also king of Naples and Sicily. After his death the area passed out of the hands of the Spanish crown, only to be reconquered by them in the 1730's.

Reported Mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: Vti. 168.
