Host Coin of Charles VIII (ruled 1483-1497), Vlack 1d Type - 1640 countermark on a Charles VIII Karolus au Douzain, Ciani 814, Duplessy 593. Struck 1488. Fine or better, strongly impressed host coin, with a large planchet flaw and crack at the top obverse – this there before the piece was struck or countermarked. A very distinct type, the obverse with a large crowned K design. Nice silvery grey, the surfaces with a very light roughness but surprisingly mark free. Extremely rare host coin type, unknown to Vlack.
