Description Savoy. Emanuele Filiberto Lira 1562-T, Biaggi-425, MIR-506b, XF40 NGC. Slightly double-struck on a flan with some minor cracks and flaws and an apparent banker's mark at 12:00 on the obverse. The surfaces are toned medium gray and deepen to charcoal in protected areas. A fairly significant die flaw has disfigured a portion of Emanuele's portrait, leaving him without the majority of his nose. Despite some of the problems, this type is scarce and desirable for the intermediate or type collector of the House of Savoy. Realized $1,292.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
