Help with these 2 coins


Recommended Posts

#1 - No. Someone's put it in a vice to make an impression.


#2 - A Google search of the visible legend of FRANCISCVS I brings up results for Franciscus I -- 18th/19th century Austrian silver.

Found out the coin #2 isn't Austrian

But an Italian State - Lombardy-Venetia (early 1820s)


He was Emperor of Austria, hence the title including the word Austria being used on the coin. Francis II, Holy Roman Emperor but also Franz I, the first Emperor of Austria.
