This is my prospective country list. Many of these would be divided into smaller individual issuers, but I thought a more general list would be a better starting point.

Albania
Austria
Bohemia
Bosnia
Bulgaria
Byzantine Empire
Croatia
Crusader & Christian States
Denmark
Estonia
France
Germany
Hungary
Italy
Livonia
Low Countries
Luxembourg
Moldavia & Wallachia
Montenegro
Netherlands
North Macedonia
Norway
Ottoman Empire
Poland
Portugal
Rus Principalities
Serbia
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland
United Kingdom


I think we're gonna need a bit of luck on this one...

Does the country of issue start with a letter of the alphabet from A to M inclusive?

The Netherlands can be removed from the list as it didn't exist as an entity before 1581.
From 1384 to 1482 that area was part of the Burgundian State (which itself seems to be missing from the list).
Scotland needs to be added to the list as well as it was an independent kingdom until 1707.

I see some names of places on that list that do not fit your date range. I also see some missing. Just saying

My list is based on how coins are listed in Numista. Burgundian Netherlands is under Netherlands. Scotland is under UK.

Anyone have any thoughts.

I don't like our chances with this one.

In the mean time let's see if we can half the date range.

Was the coin issued before 1354?

After all that work put into making a list, good job sprue, now you want a fare! . I got a bus pass...will that do.... .

So we will assume you answered the question using just the alphabet. This will cover the "missed" countries A-M as well as the names on "the list". So the country name starts with a letter from N-Z. May or may not be on the list. .

I just went back and see I'm barking up the wrong tree. The country is not on the list, but starts with A-M. The answer was edited.
