It's unbelievable how many designs came out of the 1100-1300 time period.

My thought exactly. Great additions to an already amazing collection.

Thank you,Spence. Even with all of the designs I have there are many more from that time period I don't have. Not to mention many of them have over 400 sigla varieties.

"1373-82 under King Louis I with no points around double cross;Huszar 547,Unger 432a,Pohl 89-1."

This is an interesting coin, because on the obverse there is a head of a black man. The mint of Pécs city was founded in 1283 and in the 1370's years the chief engraver was a black man - Szaracémusz. In this time maybe the only black man in the whole Hungarian Kingdom. His appearance (race) on the coin was like a trade mark, so the king allowed him that instead of the Coat Of Arms his face can be on the obverse.
The common name of this piece in old hungarian language is "Szerecsenfejes dénár", Szerecsen=Black people, fejes=head and affix.

Congrat to the denars!

@gabi, thanks for the fascinating contribution!
I know there are a few other collectors here with this coin (@spence has one), and since Louis I was King of Poland at the same time, some Poland collectors have coins of Louis I in their collections.

I have seen this coin referred to as "Moor's head denar" in English, or "denar z glowa saracena" in Polish (maybe Szaracemusz = Saracen?). I think at this time in history, Hungary was the southeastern frontier between the Christian and Islamic worlds, so maybe Mr. Szaracemusz was a migrant (either willing or unwilling) from the Ottoman empire?
I am sure there is an interesting personal history there.
