56/5 McCabe G1 anonymous Quadrans Hercules Prow #0975-11, 23mm, 11g11

Quadrans. 212-195BC. 11.11grams. Rome mint. Anonymous. Crawford 056/05 anonymous. Obverse: hd Hercules r, ooo. Reverse: prow r, ooo, ROMA. Common.

This is an exceptionally well made and preserved coin for the type - fully struck centrally on a large and heavy flan from good condition dies. It is rare to find bronzes as well made. There is additional discussion about this coin on andrewmccabe.ancients.info/Books.html
