Sorry nobody else could help, but glad you succeeded!

I would add this seems to be a really obscure place from a numismatic viewpoint...

Wow, well done @wallet! That would be a Biaggi #829. However, this Follaro should weigh about 2.6 g whereas a Follaro from Guglielmo I or Guglielmo II has a similar design, but weighs 4.5 g. That would be Biaggi #831. I guess I'm not 100% sure which you have, but here are some potentially useful links:

@Spence. My coin is more like the once in MEC 14, 57-59. Probably 57 as it fits the weigth best. 4.07 compare to 4.20. I don't have the Biaggi book, only MEC 14. See Pictures.

Ok yes I think that you are right on this--both the design and weight match up. Nice job!
