Grade:     gVF
Notes:     Extremely rare. In Troxell’s study of the Macedonian mint, she concluded that Price’s description of this type, as bearing a wreath, was mistaken. All of the examples known to her had a leaf, rather than wreath, including the coin Price used in his plates. This coin, however, vindicates Price, as it clearly has a wreath. Accordingly, this type belongs to Troxell’s group B3, which has the wreath symbol.
