Hi Guys

I have been trawling the internet archives as well as the images of LaTour to pin point this coin. It has an obverse which looks very like the stylised head of the Boar and Eye Potin of the Senones, but after that I really can't say. It weighs 7.1g with a Dia: 16.3 mm - 17.4mm. and is 4.5 mm thick. The picture here shows it in 3 different lights. Thank you.

Just been informed that the coin was found in England, though I suspect it maybe from further afield. Thanks again

Neat coin! To me the curvy horse resembles those on AE's of the Ambiani, like these:


Just a guess here, but the coin could be an Ambiani AE somewhat like the one at the bottom, below (the OP coin is above it, for comparison), from https://www.ma-shops.com/numisaisne...9948&lang=en

Thanks Bob, certainly think it has a very close resemblance. Will have a good look at that. Thank you so much.
