AR SHEKEL OF TYRE  

Hendin 917, VF, 25mm, 14.29 grams. 

A very SCARCE year for this historic Year 159 = 33 C.E. crucifixion issue. It is generally accepted tha the Shekels of Tyre were the coins meant by the 30 pieces of Silver. A very NICE coin with FULL weight at an excellent price! Another coin as this one in similar condition was estimated in a recent auction at $3000.

The "KP" Shekels were minted in Jerusalem according to Prof. Yaakov Meshorer although  a great number of numismatists disagree with this contention.
