MS-65. Brilliant lustre with clean surfaces. From dies of high style. Very rare spelling variant 'FVSCARI' for 'FOSCARI' and capital 'F' beginning the name. Papodopoli, Stahl, & Bell all concur that this is not an imitation, but a genuine Venetian issue. It is the work of an especially accomplished die cutter from Foscari's long reign. It is stylistically tied to dies with the typical 'f' beginning the Doge's name.
