From the Richard A. Jourdan Collection of Medieval European Coins. Ex Karl Stephens FPL 172 (2011), no. 229.

‘The only redeeming feature of East European coinage in the fifteenth century was in fact the Hugarian ducat forint, which was struck in great quantities throughout... Hungarian ducats circulated throughout Europe, so that we find them as far afield as the British Isles, whether in the accounts of Celys, wool merchants trading the Low Countries, or in those of the Lord High Treasurer of Scotland, who kept the king supplied with them for gambling in the evenings.’ Grierson, pp. 212-3.
