This specimen was lot 2293 in Sincona sale 43 (Zurich, October 2017), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,
"Carlo Emanuele I, 1580-1630 Ducatone 1588. Torino II. Tipo. Äusserst selten. Sehr schön. Schrötlingsfehler und Felder geglättet. (duchy of Savoy, Charles Emanuel I, 1580-1630, ducatone of 1588, Turin mint, second type. Extremely rare, Very fine, Planchet defect and fields smoothed.)"
This type was struck 1588 and is mintmarked "T" for Turin. None of the silver or gold coins of Savoy of the sixteenth century can be called common. In 1714, the duke's successful participation in the War of the Spanish Succession garnered him the island of Sicily, which he traded for Sardinia in 1720.
