||Kingdom of Napoleon. Napoleon 2 Lire 1812/02-V/M, Venice mint, KM-C9.3, Pag-20, MS62 NGC. A beautiful coin, superbly toned in gray and iridescent blues. The reverse of this variety with pointed halberd tips is especially choice. There are a couple of surface abrasions noted on the obverse commensurate with the grade. This overdate and mintmark overstrike are not without precedent, although they remain unlisted in standard references.
Realized $940.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
