Italy Venice Scudo (Erizzo)  1631 to 1646
Italy Venice Scudo (Erizzo) 1631 to 1646

Wow! Look at this beautiful coin from Stack's April 2010 Coin Galleries Sale. It sold at auction for $757 US dollars, a completely fair price (maybe too fair) for such a beautiful piece. Not only is the coin beautiful, with a deep, sharp strike and attractive toning, it is housed in an NGC numismatic holder. All these attributes add to value.

A scudo is 140 soldi, shown at the bottom of Stack's picture. Lynn's coin is a half scudo, with a 70 at the bottom. Quarter (35) scudo are another denomination. In general, the smaller the denomination, the lesser in value.

Francesco Erizzo was Doge in Venice from 1631 to 1646. Doge is a political term, an office of prestige and power.

Retail prices for such coins range from a few hundred dollars to $1000. The largest determining factor is the condition of the coin. CoinQuest thanks Stack's for releasing copyright on this picture, because it is such a fine example of this rare piece. Coins with more wear and less eye appeal will end up at the lower end of the price range.

If you are selling a coin to a dealer, or putting it up for auction, remember that there will be a mark-down from the retail prices cited above. Mark-downs in the range of 30 to 50 percent are typical.
