C1 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes, McCabe group C1, Related to RRC 89 club. Short thick prowstem. Low profile fighting platform with club. 50 gram As.

Design elements are like RRC 89, including a broad head, shaggy beards, short thick converging prowstem, and keel lines sloping upwards towards rostrum. There is usually a club within a low profile (not elevated) fighting platform, and a wide flat-topped deck structure. These coins are of very fine style, with well centered strikes on broad flans, which contrasts with the main bulk of the RRC 89 issue.
