    Description

    Sardinia. Vittorio Emanuele I 5 Lire 1816 (Eagle)-L MS65 NGC, Turin mint, KM113, Mont-24 (R2), MIR-1030a (R2). A show-stopping and in all respects magnificent offering for the elusive first-year of this seldom-seen type, painstakingly exacting in the design elements and brilliantly radiant on the whole, surpassing even the D. Moore example that we sold in January 2017 for $8812 (Auction #3051, lot 32252) as the current finest recorded. A small flan flaw is note on the obverse for accuracy, but rather superficial and non-distracting to the eye.
