Papal States 1758 1/2 scudo
This sede vacante type was issued 1758 only after the death of Benedict XIV (1740-58) and prior to the election of Clement XIII (1758-69). This type is scarce, verging on rare, and this specimen would be quite expensive were it not for the hole.
Recorded mintage: unknown.
Specification: 13.21 g, .917 fine silver.
Catalog reference: KM 1186, Ber-2886.
