Attribution: Hendin 692
Date: 133/4 AD
Obverse: Hebrew legend in wreath, adjustment marks
Reverse: One handled jug, palm to left, Hebrew legend around
Size: 18.16 mm
Weight: 1.7 grams
Description: A very scarce zuz (Mildenberg 75 only 6 specimens noted) overstruck on an eastern drachm of trajan with the jaw and ear of Trajan clearly visible on the jug. When examined by David Hendin the very light weight led him to the conclusion that the coin is 100% crystalized and was no doubt found underwater, perhaps in a shipwreck and the saltwater reacted with the silver to form crystalization without damaging the beautiful detail of the coin.
