I suspect this is quite common, but I felt compelled to acquire it on the basis of its well preserved high relief.

About 18mm across at its widest, 6.2 grams in weight. I'm not sure if for a bronze coin that data would denote a particular denomination.

@lc, how stable is the green in the pits on the profile? I'm hoping that it isn't bronze disease.

I don't get the impression that there's anything active going on.

Ok good. I'm glad to be wrong about the BD.

It is a beautiful coin, but the reverse is superb.
