My vote is for it to count for this year. His rule was 3/4 in 1486 AD and presumably the die cutters took a few weeks to prepare the dies once he ascended. I'm interested to see what others think.

Let it count. The coin is datable to a time span less than one year long, and most of that time span is within 1486.

I'm the one who originally pointed out that it should probably qualify [for reasons essentially equivalent to @erafjel's wording], so obviously I also agree.

(It looks like we're 4 to 0 in favor so far, not counting @tdziemia.)

Because of the Italian antiquities law and export paperwork, I will probably not have it in hand until August. But, as it is paid for, I now own it.

There was never a doubt in my mind.

Nice one @tdz!

Here is a Half Stuiver from the Netherlands City State of Nijmegen dated AD 1485:

I can't see any dates, can people posting these coins please indicate where the date is and whether there are figures not recognisable to today's eyes like that weird looking 4 that looks like a loop etc.

I mean we are in the era of heart shaped shields, castles, maidens and medieval knights.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

No hearts on my coin, but there are rosettes. The reverse inscription has the date in Latin and Roman numerals:

ANNO DOMI' MCCCC LXXXV

For the foreseeable future, all of my posts in this thread will have this same date format, but I'll be sure to point out any oddities of form.

If you examine the M letterforms on this coin, you will see that they are all but one of the type with "swoopy" arms, but the M of DOMI is blocky. I don't have a good reason for this, but would be very glad to have someone educate me. I guess as some letters and numbers were in transition, it would not be unheard of for a die cutter to use the "old" letterform as well as the "new" one.

Here is an undated grosso of the Florentine Republic struck in the first half of 1484, MIR 64/2. The mintmaster's symbol in the crook of Saint John's upraised arm reverse, is that of Gerozio di Cambio di Vieri Medici which can be used to date the coin.

I have removed the topic title alert. I will put it back if we get stuck again.
