Comments
As far as I can tell, this denomination is not listed in Bop or SNG ANS. It is the same type as Bop 31-32 and SNG ANS 938-963, but these coins are all sextuples or quadruples; the double or dichalkon is not reported. This therefore appears to be a RARE denomination, and the specimen is a pretty decent one.
