Comments

KM#64.2 differs from 64.1 in the format of the legend on the obverse. Β KM#64.1 has the regnal year “ANΒ·I” as part of the main legend (and hence upside down) and the Pope’s name starts below the bust. Β KM#64.2 has the regnal year separate from the main legend under the bust (and the right way up) and the Pope’s name is entirely above the bust.
