Cyprus. Henry II (second reign, 1310-24) Gros NGC AU 50 4.41g
King seated on curule chair with foreparts of lions holding scepter and / + IЄRVSALЄM Є D' ChIPR, Cross of Jerusalem. A superb example of this Crusader issue. The flan is of good metal and the strike is sharp. Accentuating the devices is a particularly fine cabinet patina with prismatic overtones. Never cleaned, thus rare and uncommon. Auction comps average in the $800-$1000+ based on internal research.
