Sincona sale 26, lot 3314
This specimen was lot 3314 in Sincona sale 26 (Zurich, October 2015), where it sold for 375 CHF (about US$463 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"ITALY, Firenze, Cosimo III. 1670-1723 Piastra 1680. Gutes sehr schön. Zainende. (Italy, grand duchy of Tuscany, Cosimo III, 1670-1723, piastra of 1680, good very fine, clipped.)"
This type was struck 1680 only and is quite expensive in the SCWC. This specimen appears to be clipped, perhaps to remove a mount.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver, this specimen 31.06 g.

Catalog reference: MIR 327, Dav-4211.
