zoom view

Denomination : AE 21.

Date : ca. 180 to 150 BC.

Size : 19.6 x 21.9 mm   Weight : 5.16 grams.

Reference : SNG BM 351

Grade : gVF with a good hard green patination.  A very attractive specimen.  The patination has rubbed through to the bronze in the highest points of the reverse, but this is not as noticable with the coin in hand, as it is on the image.  Also, the patination gives an oddly reflective surface, which mutes out parts of the coin.  Over all, this coin is somewhat nicer than the image suggests.

Obverse : Head of  Apollo right.

Reverse : Grape cluster and staff, with  BASI to the right and KANI to the left.

A very similar specimen, probably about 1/2 grade better, sold on the Gorny & Mosch auction 125, lot 71, for $560.00 US plus a 15% buyers premium, making the price realized over $600 US.
