Sincona sale 46, lot 608
This specimen was lot 608 in Sincona sale 46 (Zurich, May 2018), where it sold for 350 CHF (about US$420 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"ITALY, House of Savoy/Sardinia, Carlo Alberto, 1831-1849. 20 Lire 1846, Turin. Gutes sehr schön. (kingdom of Sardinia, Charles Albert, 1831-49, twenty lire of 1846, Turin mint. Good very fine.)"
This type was struck 1832-45 at Turin (shown here) and Genoa. Tho not rare, it is much less common than the issues of Victor Emanuel II (1850-60). The Genoa issues are scarcer than the Turin issues even tho the mintages are generally larger.

Recorded mintage: 29,919, a rare date.

Specification: 6.45 g, .900 fine gold, .186 troy oz AGW, this specimen 6.46 g.
