Primary Reference:     SNG ANS 1025 (same dies)
Photograph Credit:     Classical Numismatic Group
Grade:     Good VF, small obverse die break
Notes:     Note: auction ticket is not present. Nonetheless, an old collection ticket (included) attributes the coin as this lot, and the description in the sale catalogue is conclusive: the obverse die is the same as lot 85 (which is plated), the reverse legend (breaks and portion off the flan) matches, the die axis is the same, and the reverse is struck off-center. Additionally, the symbol below the horse is the same (although described as a vertical thunderbolt, it is actually a vertical club--lot 85 has a similar error, denoting a horizontal thunderbolt, but the plate clearly shows a horizontal club).
