Severus Alexander Posted February 8 · Supporter Share Posted February 8 1 hour ago, Nap said: Busy all day yesterday, so it’s Medieval Tuesday! Hugh Capet, king of France 987-996 with Bishop Herve of Beauvais Denier O: HVGO REX HERVEIS R: BELVACVS CIVITAS Duplessy 1 Hugh, the first Capetian king, issued coins with otherwise little known Bishop Herve of Beauvais. His coins copy the Carolingian monogram, probably for familiarity and propaganda to show a dynastic continuation. This scarce denier is the only collectible coin of Hugh, with a couple other types known but only from one or two examples. Excellent coin! I was your underbidder. 😢🙃 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
