Actually that coin was CHEAP considering only 3-5 known. A US coin of same rarity would be 1M+ seeing how overpriced USA coins are. Same for British coins/ Una & the Lion over 35 known go for 1M++.

Thank God that most Ancients/ World coins are bargains.

Here is another one from Papacy....

Bologna Mint

3.27g.     24mm.     .986     12h

CNI 32 Muntoni 59a   MIR 1875/2   Fr. 363  Chimienti 510
