Comment: Extremely, extremely rare coin. So far one of its kind. There are only 7 known coins similar to this type that have Jesus on the reverse but 5 are without visible throne and on 1 king has different attire. This is the only example with king holding a scepter and Jesus in front of the high throne. Lovely toning, yellow/green patina and natural aging always a contributor to its authenticity, good detail with very visible Serbian legend. Very well preserved being nearly 800 years old.
