By Chris Chatigny, Numismatist & Cataloger

The Stack’s Bowers Galleries official world coin auction of Whitman Coin & Collectibles Baltimore Expo contains a wide variety of exceptional numismatic collectibles. The coin we feature here hails from northern Italy during the Napoleonic era, a silver Scudo di Lire Sei (Scudo of 6 Lire) from an exciting if tumultuous period in history. Napoleon formed this client state in 1797, though it fell to an invading Austro-Russian Army just two years later.
