A Handful of Trapezuntine Rarities


Recommended Posts

Andronikos I Gidon anonymous Christ Chalcites trachy



This is the first time I have seen this coin type and it seems to only exist in the form of two or three museum specimens. It is extremely rare and seems to be the first in private hands (besides the plate possibly), with none in the sales archives of the recent decades.

This coin, while not as rare as the previous, might be more fun. The eagle headed obverse looks quite chickenesque
