Hungary, Matthias "Corvinus" (Mátyás Hunyadi in Hun.) (1458-1490).

AR denar; 16mm/0.5 gm

Con/ EF for the type; perfect stikes on both sides in very high relief and very rare in this condition.

Obv/ + M • MATHIE • R • VNGARIE •; Four-part shield with Hungarian arms (Árpádian stripes, patriarchal cross, Dalmatian leopard heads, Bohemian lion), raven with ring in escutcheon.

Rev/ PATRON — VNGARIE; Nimbate crowned Madonna with nimbate infant Jesus to her right, K—P/thin rosette (privy mark) in fields.

Ref/ The type was struck in 1487-1490 (per Pohl) or 1489-1490 (per Huszár & Unger). This privy mark was struck in Kremnitz (formerly Körmöcbánya, Hungary, now Kremnica, Slovakia) by Peter Schaider, oberkammergraf (per Pohl), in 1489 (per Pohl).

I hope that clears things up for you. LOL! This is the closest reference for this issue I could find, but it may not be quite correct. Click Here for a link to more on Forum.

Seller's Note/ Why the Dracula reference? M Corvinus was actually the jailer for Vlad Tepes (himself) for a short time. This is certainly one of the finest examples of such denars you may ever see. If you click the link above, compare our condition verses the others.
