Notes:     The higher weight and gold content of this piece clearly place this coin at the earliest stage of this large issue that quickly devolves into silver and, later, billon. While Van Arsdell’s general listing for his 1235-1 type encompasses all metal types, SCBC only lists the silver and billon.
