  1. 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.
  2. These arrived during the week from a Jesús Vico auction - they are much darker in reality, overexposed in the photo'. They were sold as "REPÚBLICA ROMANA. Lote de 3 denarios recortados para circular como fracciones. Pesos de 0,4 a 0,9 g. MBC." I realised when I got them that they were probably cut from the same coin - a Q. Marcius Libo denarius (Cr. 215/1) of 148 BC. The little coins: An example of Cr 215/1 that hasn't been cut up: As they came from Vico, I'm guessing they came from Spain. As they appear to have been all cut from the same coin, is it likely that the host coin was cut up in ancient times or more recently? Has anyone seen anything similar? Thanks, Aidan.
