Square Brass double-sided weight –
Kurt Inge Sandnes fant for nylig i England:
– et myntvektlodd for gullmynten en Ungarsk Dukat,
– St Ladislaus with orb and long axe the Apostle standing front – H-D –
Forint, otherwise known as the dukat, weights 3,50 gram.
It depicts the standing figure of St Ladislaus.
It was first struck during the reign of Ludwig I,1342-1383.
The type continued to be struck, at the same weight,
with the figure of the ruler in place of St Ladislaus from 1614,
until the mid-19th century.
