Please help identify! Ferdinand IV Silver 12 grams Kingdom of 2 Scillies 1793 Diameter 32mm
Hello, Please can anyone help identify this coin? Sold to me as '6 Tari' but I am not finding it under that denomination and it has no recognisable value figures on it. Grani? Piastre?
PS Happy New Year Everyone!
Hi John --
Sure enough. It is a 6 tari from Sicily. I never heard of it, either!
The one in my picture sold to a collector for $100 US dollars during a 2019 auction. Yours should bring about that price from a collector. A coin dealer would buy it for about half that much,
Here is the auction listing for the one in my picture.
