(monogram); Müller –; Price 1581 var. (position of monogram, symbol below throne); ADM II 405 (same obv. die); HGC 3, 1751c. Good VF, struck from altered reverse die (see below).

The left field control marks on the reverse of this coin appear to have been engraved over prior symbols that were erased in the die, resulting in a very weak strike in that area.
