159, Lot: 95. Estimate $75.
Sold for $70. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.
ISLANDS off CARIA, Rhodos. Rhodes. Circa 188-84 BC. Æ 13mm (1.53 g). Radiate head of Helios right / Rose, bud to left, within incuse square. SNG Copenhagen 860-3. VF, hard green patina.
removing the light green stuff, results in pitting afterwards.
applying patina from a bottle makes the coin more or less presentable again.
pity the reverse is struck off centre, its quite a hairy coin too
My thoughts exactly, except for budget constraints.
Thanks! The more I've learned about ancients the more ignorant I have learned that I am, so I have come to doubt more. I appreciate your seal!
