    Description

    Crusaders. Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem. Baldwin III. 1143-1163. AV cut gold fragment (10 mm x 6 mm, 0.42 g). Partial Latin legends: Octafoil / Hexagram. Metcalf, LE 240ff; J. D. Brady, "A Firm Attribution of Latin Gold Coinage to Twelfth Century Jerusalem," ANSMN 23 (1978), type 1; CCS p. 67, types 1-3. Good VF. Rare.
    In all probability these cut gold fragments with Latin legends were minted and immediately cut for circulation as bullion. There are no known examples of an entire coin, the only evidence for this coinage at all being these cuttings.
