    This is a type that requires no introduction and little commentary. I think it is safe to say this is one of the most popular of all ancient coin types.

    Wonderful coins shown here. The OP coin looks like bronze. I guess that is is just the photograph

    Here is my example:

    Obv.: CAESAR
    Rev.: --
    Mint: Military mint traveling with Caesar
    Date: BC 54-51
    Weight: 4.07g
    Crawford 443/1; HCRI 9; Sydenham 1006; RSC 49

    Extremely fine condition with attractive toning. Obverse slightly off centre.

    I noticed the dating of BC 49 in previous posts. I have BC 54-51. How are these dated?
