This arrived yesterday, from a recent Tintinna auction. It was sold as Cr. 228/1, but it's more likely Cr. 228/2 from 140 BC (the difference being whether the obverse legend reads XVI or X - there appears to be a shadow of an X and no other letters, but it's hard to see). In any case, it's either overstruck on an earlier coin or has some die breaks on the obverse which add to Roma's face. It weighs 4.00g and is about 19/20mm in diameter. Anyone hazard a guess as to the undertype or is it a couple of die breaks? Thanks, Aidan.
