Denomination : Gold quarter stater (the gold is very base and pale)

Date : 1st century BC.

Reference : Spink British - 47.  VA-145-5.  Sear Greek - 158.

Size : 11.3 x 12.3 mm.  Weight : 1.29 grams.

Grade : gVF.  The obverse die always has this nearly blank look.  The coin is a pale rose gold, but has a very dark toning on much of the coin (they have more silver and copper than gold in them, and it is those components that tone).  

Obverse : The form probably started off as a head, but on this issue it is always shows as basically a blank raised bump. 

Reverse : Tree-like trophy in the center, with various objects around it.  It is not 100% certain which way is supposted to be up on these, and if you check the various auction listings for the type you will see it shown both ways at different sales.
