    I've upgraded and am selling my previous example of the corn-ear(grain-ear in American English) uncia. This type was struck on the island of Sicily circa 214-212 BC and is probably related to the Siege of Syracuse. This is a nice example retaining good detail with some light smoothing and I believe some artificial darkening of the patina, but priced as such. I'm asking $55 + $3 shipping in the USA. I can get a quote for international shipping if you'd like. Payment by PayPal. Thanks for looking!
