Description Naples & Sicily. Ferdinando IV copper Pattern 10 Tornesi 1796-P AP, MIR-388, MS64 BN NGC.

Our research yielded no examples of this type appearing at auction in the past 15 years; in support of the rarity of this piece, the MIR catalog does not even contain a photograph of this type, just a line drawing. This is a once in a generation opportunity for the collector of Neapolitan rarities! Realized $52,875.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
