VRBS ROMA from Lyons
« on: July 29, 2017, 08:37:24 AM »
here is an unofficial VRBS from Lyons. The style is very good, but one big thing is that what should be stars over the wolf are X's with small dots on either side.

bidding was fierce and it sold for $192.85

16mm   2.1gm

The die engraver was well inspired, everything he has engraved is matching with Lyon coinage including the .X. which is visible on the RIC.220-224

that is a good observation...the X's do seem to copy the VOT X coinage.
