Lot 819:
Bulgaria. Ferdinand I (Prince 1887-1908, Tsar 1908-1918). AR 5 Leva, Kremnitz mint, 1892. KM 15; Nikolov 16. AR. 24.98 g. 37.00 mm. Contact marks. Good VF. Minting coins at a foreign mint is a wide-spread custom, even today. Given the family background of Ferdinand, a Hungarian mint seems to be a very obvious choice. Additionally, the portrait is the work of A. Scharff, a well-known medalist of the era in the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
