At our Auction 11 – Selected Vilnius half-grosz of Zygmunt II August with mint freshness
A beautiful, selected Vilnius half-grosz of Zygmunt II August with mint freshness. At first glance, a common coin, but if we look closely, a skilled and slightly experienced eye will notice what its uniqueness is. The characteristic shamrocks at the beginning of the obverse and reverse legends prove that it is a rare specimen minted with Georg Behm’s stamps.
Variant with a single shamrock on the obverse and two shamrocks on the reverse, circles and dots as punctuation. A variant of the legend LI / LITVA.
