The first specimen was lot 1613 in Sincona sale 6 (Zurich, May 2012), where it sold for 400 CHF (about US$604 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"ITALIEN Vaticano Pio VII. 1799-1823. Scudo 1802, AN III, Roma. Fast vorzüglich. (Italy, Papal States, Pius VII, 1799-1823, scudo of 1802, year III, Rome mint. Choice extremely fine.)"
This type is listed for 1802-07 with 1802 listed with year II, III and IV. Pius VII endured considerable mistreatment at the hands of Napoleon and was forced to participate in his coronation as emperor. The Congress of Vienna reconstituted the Papal States intact as they were before the French Revolution. They would not be incorporated into the kingdom of Italy until 1870.

Recorded mintage: unknown but fairly common.

Specification: 26.25 g, .917 fine silver; the first specimen is 26,47 g.
