Stack's Bowers November 2015 sale, lot 42459
Venice SB1115-42459r.jpg

This specimen was lot 42459 in Stack's Bowers Winter sale (Baltimore, November 2015), where it sold for $258.50. The catalog description[1] noted, "ITALY. Venice. Scudo (140 Soldi), ND (ca. 1698-99). Silvestro Valier (1694-1700). NGC VF-35. Struck under the 109th Doge, Silvestro Valier. He had been elected by the citizens of Venice primarily based on his lack of ambition after the previous Doge had dragged Venice into a costly war with the Ottoman Empire. A relatively short reign, but with a numismatic record that includes the current coin offered. A very endearing piece with even color, nice rims, and well defined devices. Do not miss out on acquiring this heavy coin with much associated history." This type is also noted for an issue of 1694 (mintmaster FT, Francesco Trevisan).

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: 31.82 g, .948 fine silver.

Catalog reference: Dav-4283; KM-431.
