043/2a var. Luceria L Aes Grave Semis. Roman mint. Saturn; S retrograde / Prow / L. AM#1014-42, 35x37mm, 42g35

Semis. 214-195BC. 42.35grams. Luceria mint. Aes Grave. Crawford 043/02a L Luceria. Obverse: hd Saturn. Reverse: prow r, L before, S retrograde above. Scarce. This issue is of different style than the other two illustrated Aes Grave semis. A cross-check with Haeberlin shows about half the issues are of this style with rounded head and clearly marked hairlines and more rounded prow. The other coins (ref the other Aes Grave Luceria semisses) have curly hair and a more detailed and less rounded prow.
