akeady Posted August 11, 2022 · Supporter Share Posted August 11, 2022 (edited) 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.
