Recommended Posts

This coin is:

30 mm

12.9 grams

No reverse. worn smooth. Nothing to see. Looks like a slug on that side.

obverse has unique design

Of which the designs are of lower relief than the rest of the coin.

Any ideas?

Any help appreciated.

Thankyou,

Doug

Sorry if this is the posted in the wrong place.

Don't know where to post this coin.

Although sometimes more than Roman coins are in the lots.

Hello Doug,

I really haven't seen anything similar before. Are the square/crosslet patterns incuse? This may not be a coin, possibly a button or a brooch/garment clasp.

Ciao, P. :)

Hi Paleologo,

I'm starting to think the same thing.

One aspect I hadn't noticed before are 3 holes, very small, equally spaces around the item.

The patterns are incuse.

Had thought maybe an early token type item or coin.

But as mentioned might be a button. Or something meant to be worn around the neck

This was in an unclean coin lot. Cleaned easily.

Have cleaned other large button looking items before.

So I guess this shouldn't be surprising.

Thankyou,

Doug
