MINTMARK VARIETY. Specimen similar to ROMA 78 except for absence of officina letter. See footnote 2 on p. 359: "These common coins have been studied and recorded with insufficient care. It appears that there were examples (of which Vienna contains a number) without any officina-letter—a separate issue, or result of error in engraving ?". Judging from quantity, "separate issue" is probably a better guess.

NOTES

Fraction. Coin sold on eBay in May 2013 for GBP 1.99 [Thanks to the collaboration of Mariusz Graczyk].
