    Sicily. Pietro de Aragon & Constanza de Hohenstaufen (1282-85) gold Pierreale d'oro ND MS65 PCGS,  Messina mint, Fr-654, MEC-756, Biaggi-1301, MIR-170. + o P o DЄI o GR'A o ARAGOn o SICIL : RЄX o || + o SUMMA o POTЄnCIA o ЄST o In DЄO o, concentric legends around arms of Aragon, + COSTA • DЄI • GRA • ARAG • SICIL' RЄG || + XPS • VInCIT • XPS • RЄGnAT • XPS • IMPAT. Mark-free and essentially pristine with evenly placed, bright luster atop moderately granular fields and a strike that is entirely sharp from the central display of the Hohenstaufen eagle and Aragonian arms to the furthest edges. Faint letter doubling, of no real consequence, is mentioned purely for accuracy's sake. All told, a magical example of early Italian gold that deserves as much recognition as an example of period art as it does as a piece of numismatic history.
